DUI/ Traffic Offenses

Through years of experience, Rob McLendon has gained specialized skills and knowledge of Georgia Traffic Violations and DUI charges. Many people do not know where to start when faced with Georgia DUI charges, traffic violations, or other criminal matters. McLendon stands beside you, answering any questions you may have. The defense team keeps you informed throughout the legal process and management of your DUI or traffic violation case.

Federal and State Drug Charges

When facing State or Federal Drug Charges, knowing the applicable law and gathering all of the facts is a must. There are both state and federal laws that cover criminal activities involving drugs. Many times, these laws overlap but are not the same. Having a lawyer with experience and knowledge in both state and federal drug laws helps you obtain an optimal outcome.

Georgia law can be very hard on anyone accused of a crime related to drugs, resulting in long prison sentences. McLendon will work hard to protect your rights and minimize the penalties for drug crimes under Georgia and Federal drug laws. We keep you informed throughout the legal process and provide excellent management of your state or federal drug case.

White-Collar Crime

White-collar criminal cases are won or lost based on the attorney’s preparation. Rob McLendon’s experience, skill, and dedication allow him to conduct a thorough investigation of your cases, all of this with one goal in mind: achieving an optimal resolution for the client.

White-collar criminal cases can be complex, and not every defense attorney is qualified to handle these crimes. We will research your case thoroughly during pre-trial and find every weakness in the prosecutor’s case.

Forfeitures

Many prosecutors pursue assets of the accused while being investigated or charged in a related criminal case. These asset forfeiture civil proceedings can become very long, draining, and complex. Our team can help protect your assets from forfeiture.

If you are facing asset forfeiture due to an investigation, arrest, or possible arrest, make the call us now to begin the defense process.

Sex Offenses

Winning Georgia sex offense cases require a thorough investigation by a competent lawyer who will defend you and your reputation. A conviction of any sex offense can carry a significant prison sentence and register your name on a sex offender list.

Today’s prosecutorial environment related to sex offense is extremely harsh. Police, investigators, and district attorneys are reluctant to dismiss any case due to backlash from the public and media. This takes an aggressive defense team to protect you.

Domestic Violence

Robert R. McLendon, IV is prepared and skilled to handle domestic violence cases. Our experience and knowledge will help guide you through the complicated legal issues surrounding domestic violence law. Every step of the way, we can help you deal with this emotional and difficult time in your life.

Hiring the right lawyer will make the difference in the outcome of your case and the lasting effects it will have on you and your family.

Probation Violations

The optimal outcome of a probation or parole violation hearing is getting to come home to your loved ones. Robert R. McLendon, IV has the experience to fight for you and reunite you with your family.

Even as a probationer or a parolee, you have rights. You need a criminal defense attorney who understands the law related to your rights during your revocation hearing. Rob McLendon is uniquely prepared to represent you.

Juvenile Law

Robert R. McLendon, IV understands the Georgia Juvenile Justice System. In response to the recent increase in violent crimes committed by children, many states have adopted a “get tough” approach to juvenile justice. It is now more important than ever to have a competent juvenile justice attorney to represent your child.

With a few exceptions, Georgia’s Juvenile Courts have exclusive jurisdiction over delinquency cases for individuals under 17 years of age. Unlike criminal acts, offenses adjudicated in juvenile court do not carry the same weight or meaning as a criminal conviction. McLendon will help you navigate through this complicated process.

Juvenile courts generally have authority over three categories of children: juveniles accused of criminal conduct; juveniles neglected or abused by their parents or in need of assistance from the state; and juveniles accused of a status offense. The mission of juvenile courts differs from that of adult courts, and for that reason, you need an attorney who is skilled and experienced in Georgia juvenile law.

Theft Crimes

Theft is the act of taking another person’s property without that person’s permission. Theft crimes include the following: shoplifting, auto theft, identity theft, robbery, burglary, embezzlement, welfare fraud, insurance fraud, theft by check, forgery, and receiving stolen property.

If you’ve been charged with a theft crime, call Rob McLendon. Theft crimes are a serious matter, whether charged as a felony or a misdemeanor, and can carry heavy consequences. Besides jail time and fines, a theft crime conviction could hinder your capability to get a job in the future.

Civil Litigation

Civil litigation encompasses a wide range of personal and corporate disputes. When dealing with a civil case such as a lawsuit or contract breach, Rob McLendon can represent and protect you.

If you are facing a civil case, don’t hesitate. We will do everything possible to protect you.
