MAJOR CASES:

– July 2017, DUI Case

Fulton County State Court. After multiple court appearances demanding a jury trial, the Court heard our Motion to Suppress evidence and a Motion to Dismiss based upon a violation of our clients right to a speedy trial.  Although the state had a valid breathe sample, the court agreed with our argument that because they took so long (approximately 3 years) to schedule our case on a trial calendar, our clients Constitutional Right to a trial was violated and the Court dismissed the case entirely.

– June 2017, Personal Injury Case

Our client was injured when an individual hit his vehicle and then ran away on foot. We successfully handled his property damage claim and then proceeded to pursue a claim on the bodily injury. Although his medical bills were less than $5,000, we demanded the insurance company pay the entire policy limits since this was a hit and run and our client would be afforded the right to punitive damages. At first, the insurance company refused but our diligent research, knowledge and investigation into their insured and her driving history (including prior DUI’s and accidents) encouraged them to pay the full policy limits of $25,000.00.

– November 2017,  Burglary  

 Cobb County Superior Court. Our client was facing a 1st degree Burglary      Charge. Our client was facing up to 10 years in prison. After pleading under First  Offender, and many long months of successful negotiations with the district attorney, we closed the case with 2 years of the sentence suspended, and the 8-year balance on probation. Not only did we avoid jail time in this case, but the 8-year probationary is eligible for termination upon completion of the state requited conditions.  

– November 2017, Speeding

Suwanee Municipal Court. Our client had received three speeding ticket in a 2-year time frame and had accumulated quite a plethora of points on their driving record. This ticket in particular was a 4-point offense, which can be detrimental to a young driver’s insurance costs.  We are always proactive in our clients completing conditions usually required by the state prior to an appearance in court, as judges and prosecutors tend to favor the proactivity. This case was a perfect example. After we presented our clients community service and defensive driving class, the prosecutor agreed to not report the citation to the state, and no points would be added to our client’s license.  

– April 2018, Racing

Alpharetta Municipal Court. Our client was charged with Racing, Super Speeding, Reckless Driving, and driving with an Expired Tag. All of these charges carry repercussions of jail times at the judge’s discretion, fines exceeding $2000.00, plus license suspension. The judge agreed to reduce the Racing Charge to Too Fast for Conditions, dismiss the other two charges, dissolve any jail time, as well as not suspending their license. To top it all off, once our client completes all the conditions required by the judge within the 12-month probationary period, all charges will be dismissed and their arrest will be restricted.  

HOW WE CAN HELP YOU:

  • Why hire a criminal defense attorney?

    Being charged with a crime – either felony or misdemeanor – warrants the legal advice of a qualified criminal defense attorney. You need someone on your side who can protect your rights and secure the best possible outcome for your case. A criminal defense attorney can help you understand the charges filed, available defenses, likely plea bargains, and what is expected post trial or conviction. Learn more.

  • Should you assert your right to remain silent?

    Yes. State that you are asserting your Fifth Amendment right against self incrimination and request the opportunity to speak with a lawyer. You should assume that anything you say can be twisted around and used against you at trial.

  • What will your personal injury lawyer do?

    After an accident you may find yourself bombarded from all directions. Requests and paperwork from doctors, law enforcement, and insurance companies can be confusing and overwhelming. Yet, no one seems able to provide the information most important to you. A personal injury lawyer can help organize the chaos and earn you the claim to which you’re entitled. Learn more.

LATEST NEWS & TESTIMONIALS

  • Dedicated DUI lawyer that goes the extra mile!
        

    Manal Chehimi handled my DUI case in the courtroom. She got my DUI reduced to a reckless driving (which was my main objective in hiring a lawyer). She did a great job of explaining the likely outcomes and giving me detailed information about what I needed to do to fulfill my requirements once the case was decided. She also managed to get a "Nolo contendre" ruling on my reckless driving instead of a guilty verdict, which means I won't have points on my record. When I went to find out about my probation after the ruling, she stayed with me to make sure everything went smoothly. It is a good thing she did! The clerk had changed my probation from 12 months to 24 months! Manal caught the judge before he left the courthouse, and made sure to get everything straightened out that day.
    – Amber
  • A wonderful attorney
        

    Manal Khaled Chehimi is an exceptional lawyer. I hired Donald Turner for help in a DUI case and he and Ms. Chehimi were simply amazing. They managed to get my DUI reduced to a reckless driving charge and enabled me to keep my drivers licence as well. My experience with Ms. Chehimi was a most positive one as she was always available for questions or simply to take the time to reassure me. I would most certainly seek her help if needed in the future.
