Law - Driving & Traffic

The Law Office of Clyde M. Urquhart specializes in the defense of individuals who have been charged with the offense of driving under the influence. There are many ways a person can be charged with driving while intoxicated in the State of Georgia. Driving while under the influence of alcohol is the most common form of impaired driving in Georgia. However, there are a number of other substances, both legal and illegal, which by themselves or in combination of alcohol or other substances can result in a person being cited for driving under the influence. A D.U.I. citation or traffic violation is the most common way that the average law-abiding citizen comes into direct contact with the criminal justice system. Remember no matter how or why you got your citation, AN ARREST IS NOT A CONVICTION! In my 35 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer, I have tried almost every conceivable form of D.U.I. citation. In addition, I have handled almost every form of traffic violation, ranging from vehicular homicide all the way down to speeding citations. I am a trial lawyer with a vast array of experience and have been able to build my practice because of my skill both inside and outside the courtroom and my abilities to procure positive results for my clients. I am prepared to consider taking your case. If you retain me, you will have an advocate who will attempt to get you the best possible result in your case. I realize also that anxiety and stress, always accompanies being charged with a D.U.I. or other traffic violation. I will work for the fastest possible resolution of your case so your life can return to normal. As I stated before I have practiced criminal law for 35 years. Unlike most of the other lawyers advertising on the internet (the T.V. lawyers from Jacksonville, Florida or the Georgia lawyers from all over the State who tell you they will come to Camden County but have never practiced in Camden County) when you retain me, you are hiring a lawyer who lives and works in Camden County, Georgia. I actively practice in every Court in Camden County, including Camden County Superior Court, Camden Probate Court, Camden Magistrate Court, Kingsland Municipal Court, and St. Marys Municipal Court. I know the workings of the Camden County criminal justice system and can provide you with the best legal representation for your problems.

Law - Criminal

The Law Office of Clyde M. Urquhart has been providing criminal defense work for the last 35 years. Clyde M. Urquhart is licensed to practice in both the Federal Court for the Southern District of Georgia and all of the Courts in the Georgia State Court System, including the Georgia Supreme Court and the Georgia Court of Appeals. In my many years of practice I have represented a wide spectrum of people and cases. I have handled the most serious of felony charges, including, capital murder, armed robbery, and the like, down to the most minor misdemeanor charges, such as public intoxication and disorderly conduct. I believe no case is too big or too insignificant for me to provide representation for an individual. I have learned over the years that no matter what criminal activity the government charges you with having committed, it is of the utmost importance to the person who has been charged. Therefore, I represent every case in which I become involved with the same vigor and determination to gain the best possible result for each and every client. There are certain legal rights that are inalienable and the government must be held accountable to the people. Your legal rights are important and they need to be protected. I have been a criminal defense lawyer for over 35 years and I am prepared to fight for your rights. Many lawyers do not like being involved in representing criminal defendants-they prefer the simplicity of dealing with real estate closings or corporate law. When you need a trial lawyer to defend your rights and liberties, I will represent you in Court. Unlike other lawyers who talk about their expertise on T.V., I will be at the Courthouse to protect your rights and liberty. My office recognizes that there is a high level of stress associated with being charged with a criminal offense. It does not matter whether you are charged with a serious felony or a misdemeanor crime, your case is the most important criminal case in your world. As a result of my many years of criminal defense experience, I appreciate the anxiety you and your family experience during the criminal justice process. Nothing is more important than getting your life back on track. I tailor my representation to attain that goal for you. I will handle your case ethically and with an eye towards resolving your case at the earliest possible opportunity so you and your loved ones can get on with your lives. In the meantime, while I am representing you, I will attempt to minimize the amount of disruption your case may create. With your permission I will attend any court appearances without your presence whenever possible. I will keep you informed as to the status of your case and keep you updated about court dates. My office will promptly reply to your telephone calls or email inquiries. I will endeavor to make your experience in dealing with the criminal justice process a less stressful experience.
