About The Abbott Law Firm
Led by McDonough lawyer, David Abbott, the Abbott Law Firm handles criminal defense, DUI, and appeals cases in Henry County and surrounding Metro Atlanta.
The criminal justice system can be needlessly cruel. I work to tame it. In every case, my basic goal is the same: protecting my client’s human potential. As a McDonough attorney, my tactics are flexible. If an officer broke the law or was sloppy, I’m not afraid to embarrass him. If negotiation locks in a good deal, all the better. When a victim lies, I impeach her. When prosecutors are unreasonable, I go over their head and argue our case to a judge or jury.
My approach is rigorous and data driven. As an experienced McDonough lawyer for felonies and misdemeanors, I ask hard questions early in a case. Is a jury trial winnable? Is it worth the risk? Is it the best use of my client’s resources? How have your judge and your prosecutor dealt with similar cases in the past? How can we improve this? Is rehabilitation an alternative to punishment?
