Drug charges — felony or misdemeanor
Being charged with a drug-related crime can be very serious. At stake: your livelihood, your drivers license, your career, future student loans and more.
You have rights granted by the State of Georgia. Weeks Law can be your advocate throughout the process.
If your child was born out of wedlock, you may not have the right to visit and care for your child without proper legitimation.
In the past, you could legitimate your child by signing a petition with the mother. As of 2016, this is no longer true: you must now file a petition with the court in the mother’s county of residence.
Weeks Law can help every step of the way — from adding your name to the birth certificate, establishing custodial or visitation agreements, to working out fair child support payments.
Every DUI case and client are unique. April Weeks is an experienced DUI litigator, and can help make sure your rights are vigorously defended every step of the way.
Remember: you have the right to refuse roadside and in-station breathalyzer tests.
