Marijuana Possession Defense Lawyer

In the state of Georgia, it is a crime to possess marijuana for personal use or to buy, manufacture or sell it. Georgia law considers the possession of an ounce or less of marijuana to be a misdemeanor. However, it is important to realize that there are circumstances in which possession of less than an ounce can result in a felony charge. This is typically when the offender is found to have intent to distribute, either for sale or for sharing. The ramifications of marijuana possession and intent to distribute are significant, as it can include possible prison time, fines and other penalties.

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
