Defense Against All Criminal Charges
Have you been charged with a crime? You probably understand the severity of the matter. You know that you face the possibility of incarceration, fines and a criminal record that could haunt you for the rest of your life. You need to fight back against the criminal charge, and a Berkeley County criminal defense lawyer can help. My name is George B. Bishop, Jr. With more than 30 years of criminal law experience, I have the strength to fight for you.
Dedicated Representation From A Former Prosecutor
I began my legal career as a prosecutor in the 9th Judicial Circuit in Berkeley County before eventually opening my own law office and defending people accused of crime.
My background has played a major role in my successful handling of criminal defense cases. As a former prosecutor, I have stood in my opponent’s shoes. I know the motivations and methods prosecutors use. More importantly, I know how to overcome those methods in pursuit of a positive outcome in your criminal defense case. Whether through negotiation or trial, you can be confident that I will do what it takes to defend you against a criminal charge.
Defending Against Criminal Charges In State And Federal Court
I have a strong track record defending against all kinds of misdemeanor and felony charges in state and federal court. In addition to defending adults, I have earned a reputation for defending students at local colleges and universities, and I understand the unique challenges involved in these cases.
As your attorney, I can defend you against:
Drug charges: State and federal laws provide significant consequences for a conviction on a drug charge. I provide experienced representation to fight drug charges.
Theft charges: A conviction for a theft crime may lead to collateral consequences, including adversely affecting job, military, educational or housing opportunities. I provide a strong defense to help reduce the consequences of a theft charge.
White collar crime charges: Nonviolent financial charges in state or federal court need to be taken seriously. You can rely on my experience and dedication to providing a strong defense to white collar allegations.
Violent crime charges: A conviction for assault, domestic violence or any other form of violent offense can have significant consequences, and may affect your gun rights. I stand strong to aggressively defend against these kinds of allegations.
I also defend against probation violations and handle a variety of post-conviction matters.
