Athens Georgia Criminal Defense

Aggressive, Results-Oriented Representation

If you have been accused of a crime, the issue is not whether or not you are guilty. The issue is whether a prosecutor can convince a judge or jury that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Welcome to Matt Karzen, LLC. As a criminal defense firm in Athens, Georgia, our job is to help you achieve the best possible outcome for your case. Matt Karzen, LLC provides representation for people who are accused of DUI, persons/property crimes and other state, local and federal criminal charges.

For any criminal charge, our No. 1 priority is to keep you out of jail. Our second priority is to avoid a conviction and otherwise protect your "record". Our third priority is to minimize collateral consequences such as driver's license revocation, probation, fines and problems with employment or school.

Bail Bondsman Guide

As a former felony prosecutor, I know how the state puts criminal cases together. I also know how to identify weaknesses in the state's case.

Your prosecutor may have a problem with the evidence, making a case hard to prove, or there may be a problem with how the case was made. If the police made a mistake in your arrest or the way evidence was collected, you may be able to get the evidence suppressed, and the charges either dismissed or reduced. While you may think the government "has you cold", there is always an argument to make in your defense. My job is to identify, and then implement, that defense in the most effective possible way given your legal goals.

If you have been charged with a criminal offense in Georgia, it is in your best interest to be patient and to focus on the "end game". When your case is over, you and I both want the same thing, and the only thing that matters: a good result for you.
