    • Judy Kim Saved My Life!

      By far the best attorney I’ve ever had. I ran into some serious trouble and was facing felony charges. I like most individuals asked friends and family for a good attorney so save me from doing some jail time. I then searched and started making my rounds calling different attorneys and taking notes about each one. Judy Kim seemed to be the most knowledgeable and well rounded of the bunch. I read reviews and had very mixed emotions until I spoke to her. She made me feel at ease and assured me that we could make these charges minimal and still be able to pick up the pieces and get my life back together.

    The action you take immediately after your arrest can be the most important decision you make regarding your criminal case. Severe penalties can stem from criminal accusations, making it crucial to avoid answering the questions of investigators and law enforcement officers without first contacting an attorney. Many people have mistakenly discussed their arrest and the circumstances surrounding it without an attorney present – an error they later regretted. The old adage, “everything you say can and will be used against you,” has proven to be true time and again. Therefore, it is vital that a defense lawyer is present during your questioning, ensuring that you do not damage your own defense case by unintentionally incriminating yourself.

    Your options may seem limited in the face of legal allegations, an arrest, or even a police investigation in the Atlanta area. Involving a lawyer as early in the process as possible can give your case the opportunity you deserve to successfully challenge your charges, and possibly avoid having formal charges filed against you altogether.

    Although the future may seem bleak, there is often something an attorney can do to positively impact your case. When you consider the serious and long-lasting repercussions that a conviction could have on your reputation, your freedom, and your future as a whole, it is easy to see why you should take every action possible to avoid such an outcome.

    In your search for legal defense, you may quickly find that not all attorneys are created equal. Defense cases must be carefully built, and the evidence against you must be skillfully challenged in court. The prosecutor is expected to provide “burden of proof,” and when implemented correctly, expanding “reasonable doubt” in court can lead to a not-guilty verdict. The skill with which this is done is a pivotal aspect of any accusation. Both extremely capable and talented in the courtroom, Judy Kim is prepared to fight for you. You can be assured that you will have the legal representation you need when fighting to avoid conviction and the repercussions of being found guilty.

    Prosecutors in the Atlanta area are highly motivated to get a conviction; your guilt or innocence has very little to do with their intention to convict. They carefully keep track of their “conviction percentage,” as this could lead to a high-paying, private sector job in the future. You are at serious risk when entering the criminal justice system and, as such, you need a strong defender to fight for you from the moment after your arrest all the way through to the completion of your case. Having a highly motivated and powerful defense lawyer to fight for your rights from the outset of the case is crucial to obtaining a favorable outcome. You need a defense team that cares about your rights as much as the prosecutor cares about adding to their conviction record.

    Regardless of the complexities or difficulties involved in your case, Judy Kim is here for you. The experienced attorney can skillfully guide you through the legal process and vigorously defend you against even the most aggressive prosecutors. No matter what your situation, you need skilled defense on your side. In essence, you need Attorney Judy Kim. She has what it takes to successfully fight your charges and will work tirelessly to ensure that you are not found guilty in court.
