Helping you successfully navigate the criminal justice system.
Attorney Elizabeth Brandenburg represents clients for crimes throughout the state of Georgia and federal court, specializing in appeals and post-conviction litigation. She is an adjunct faculty member at Mercer Law School where she teaches advanced legal and appellate writing.
I am not a lawyer, so good help is helpful. In the two cases prior to the one documented above, I represented myself at Both Jury Trials. A concerned loved one hired Marcia Shein, after the second trial – who found that the trial proceedings legally mis-trialed due to interruptions and mis proceedings that entitled me to a New Trial. Marcia Shein was very helpful. Best in Georgia? Or Best in the South? Shes good.
I won’t go into detail about Ms. Shein’s impressive credentials. Rather I want to tell you how, as my criminal defense attorney, she is committed to me on a personal level. Unlike many attorneys, Ms. Shein actually CARES about her clients and what happens to them. To her, we are not simply “another inmate in prison”, rather we’re people too and we still have rights.
..."I appreciate all you've done for me over the years! I can never fully thank you and Elizabeth for your hard work and professionalism! It has truly been a pleasure getting to know you! I hope and trust I never have any need for your services again, but if someone close to me falls victim to the system...rest assured you'll hear from me!..."
Ms. Shein represented my husband in a federal case. She is extremely knowledgeable about the federal process, has excellent communication skills, was very responsive and always follows up with any query or request. I would recommend her to anyone that requires legal advice or representation.
Not only is Marcia one of the most intelligent lawyers I have met, but she is filled with compassion. I have the utmost respect for her, for she tells it like it is. I always knew where I stood, and what my options were. I reside in Massachusetts and could not find anyone locally that knows more about post conviction as Marcia does. She is definitely a rarity. She will fight for everything you have coming and then some! To this day Marcia continues to answer all my emails and phone calls. I have never not received a response from Marcia herself. I have, and will continue to highly recommend Marcia to anyone in need of a top-notch federal criminal defense lawyer whether it be pre-trial, sentencing, appeals, or post conviction.
I can’t even begin to find the words to express my gratitude for all you’ve done for our family this past 14 months. I shudder to think where we may have ended up if he had not had you as his advocate, attorney and friend. We are all eternally thankful and feel that you will always be “family” to us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Thank you for all of your help, you two are by far the best in your profession. The courts may not review every case that passes through their jurisdiction, but this firm has provided me with the best legal assistance I’ve received since I’ve been incarcerated. I am already aware of my federal habeas petition, I don’t have any questions, I just wanted to show my appreciation, I always refer potential clients to your firm.
