Griffin Defense Attorney

A Former Prosecutor Handling Your Defense

If you have been charged with a crime or traffic offense, there is no substitute for an experienced lawyer who is committed to your cause. Even better is a defense lawyer who has worked on the other side of the law.

I am defense attorney Josh W. Thacker, and I have both prosecuted and defended hundreds of criminal cases. During my six years as an Assistant District Attorney, I handled everything from traffic tickets to murder cases, and now I put those experiences and insights to work for citizens like you.

Any Traffic Offense, Any Charge

My criminal law practice is devoted to defeating the charges or lessening the consequences. I provide aggressive representation for traffic, misdemeanor and felony offenses, including:

  • DUI (drunk driving)
  • All types of traffic violations
  • Drug crimes
  • Assault and violent crimes
  • Theft and property crimes
  • Fraud and white collar crimes
  • Juvenile offenses

The clock is ticking on your license! If you were charged with DUI in Georgia, you must request a hearing within 10 days of your arrest, or your driving privileges could be suspended.

Griffin Defense Attorney · Central Georgia Speeding Ticket Lawyer

Located in Griffin, Georgia, I practice in the criminal courts and traffic courts in surrounding jurisdictions of the South Metro Atlanta area and Central Georgia.

I have special experience defending CDL truck drivers and out-of-state motorists tagged for traffic offenses while traveling the I-75 corridor. I can often handle your entire defense by phone, fax and e-mail without you needing to travel back to Georgia to appear in court.

My experience as a former prosecutor helps me strategize your defense. I know how to challenge the evidence to get charges dismissed or reduced. I know how to negotiate with the local prosecutors to get the most favorable deal. I know how to prepare for trial and present a convincing case to a jury.
