Griffin Criminal Law Attorney

A Former Prosecutor Handling Your Criminal 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 criminal 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 Criminal 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.
