There is nothing worse than appearing in court and realizing that your attorney has no idea what he or she is doing. This is especially true in Federal court when your attorney's level of familiarity with the Federal Rules of Procedure, the Federal Rules of Evidence, and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines can directly impact whether you receive a favorable outcome or get railroaded. If you or a loved-one are facing your day in court, it is imperative to have a knowledgeable, prepared, and articulate attorney on your side: your freedom, reputation, and future are at stake. Ann Fitz has extensive experience in both State and Federal courtrooms as both a prosecutor and defense attorney, working as an Assistant District Attorney for the State of Georgia and as a Federal Panel Attorney appointed under the Criminal Justice Act (federal indigent defense) for the Northern District of Georgia (Atlanta) and the Central District of California (Los Angeles).

Q-I've been arrested and charged with a crime. What can I expect to happen?
A-Our criminal justice system can be overwhelming and frightening. The United States' incarceration rate is much higher than that of other industrialized countries. Prison sentences are getting longer and more frequent. Every criminal case is comprised of an investigation, arrest, arraignment, conviction or acquittal, and sentencing. A skilled attorney will fight for your legal and constitutional rights every step of the way.
Q-What should I do if I am arrested?
A-If the police arrest you, immediately ask to call an attorney. Do not say anything to the police that could incriminate you. Even if you are innocent and were in no way involved in the crime for which you have been arrested, ask for an attorney and NEVER speak to the police without a criminal defense attorney present.
Q-Do I need a lawyer's help if I am accused of a crime?
A-It is always in your best interest to consult a criminal defense lawyer as early as possible if you suspect you will be facing the criminal justice system. Whether or not you believe you have been wrongfully accused, an attorney will fight for your legal and constitutional rights and monitor the proceedings for legality and fairness. If you cannot afford an attorney, you may be eligible for free legal counsel appointed by the court.
