Stephen G. Adkins

Sole Practitioner
Valdosta, Georgia

My law practice is primarily representing individuals charged with crimes. I began practicing criminal defense law my last semester of law school when I worked in the Circuit Public Defender's Office under Georgia's third year law student practice act. After passing the bar exam, I continued practicing law in the Public Defender's Office as an assistant public defender. I handled over 500 felony and misdemeanor cases ranging from DUI to drug trafficking as an assistant public defender and gained substantial criminal law experience. After leaving the Circuit Public Defender's Office, I entered private practice and now focus my practice representing individuals charged with drug trafficking and drug possession, armed robbery, aggravated assault, battery, burglary, theft cases, forgery, DUI, minor in possession of alcohol, and serious traffic violations. As a member of the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, I regularly attend criminal defense law seminars to learn cutting edge trial techniques to protect my clients' freedom and rights. I am certified in DUI Detection and Standard Field Sobriety Testing under NHTSA curriculum. My passion is criminal defense law, and I provide knowledgeable, aggressive criminal defense for my clients. Please contact me if you are in need of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
