Aggressive Representation During Criminal Proceedings

Whether you're facing a DUI or a more serious criminal charge, it is important to start protecting your legal rights by asserting them immediately following a criminal charge to avoid serious damage to your reputation. In these situations, you want an experienced and aggressive criminal lawyer on your side. That's what you'll get from Candace E. Rader, P.C.

Many lawyers will plead a case, but few will put in the time, energy and effort needed to take a case to trial. We will. We've built a solid reputation among the people of West Georgia for strong courtroom defense. This is thanks to lead attorney, Candace E. Rader, who has been defending people charged with crimes in Georgia for decades. Since 1991, she's tried and won a number of child molestation cases, serious felonies and murder cases, including a double homicide case in Atlanta.

Defense For Adult And Juvenile Crimes

Over the course of her career, Ms. Rader has tried hundreds of cases, from misdemeanors to felonies. Her experience, skill and legal knowledge is something you can trust. You can rest assured she will present nothing but the strongest defense against any criminal charge, including:

  • Violent crimes: We represent those facing charges of murder, homicide, assault and battery, assault with a deadly weapon and domestic abuse.
  • Sex crimes: Rape, sexual assault, date rape, child molestation, child sexual abuse, child pornography, solicitation, and internet solicitation and prostitution. Ms. Rader is one of very few attorneys in Carrollton who has won these types of cases.
  • Drug crimes: Possession of marijuana, methamphetamine, crack cocaine, Ecstasy, ice or prescription drugs, possession with intent to sell, and drug trafficking. We argue cases of forfeiture, if police or another enforcement agency has taken your possessions, vehicle or money claiming that it is drug-related.
  • Crimes affecting college students: We represent college students in West Georgia whose future education or employment is jeopardized by a drug charge, underage drinking violation or an allegation of sexual assault or rape.
  • Juvenile offenses: We represent youth offenders facing charges in adult or juvenile courts for any type of crime, from burglary or property damage to murder. Ms. Rader also has an expertise with school board and zero tolerance cases.
  • White collar crimes: We handle cases of embezzlement, fraud, identity theft and bad checks.
  • Traffic offenses: We defend against minor traffic tickets to serious drunk driving charges.

Any crime could affect your family; we handle those cases as well with tenacity and integrity.
