Criminal Defense Experience and a Track Record to Inspire Confidence

As a former District Attorney, Mr. McDonough has had the unique experience of serving alongside each of the 48 Georgia District Attorneys’ Offices and three U.S. Attorneys’ Offices. These exclusive relationships coupled with his unique experience allow the criminal division of Andersen, Tate & Carr to better understand a prosecutor’s mentality, to objectively evaluate each case, and create a customized strategic defense.

Using his skills and knowledge, Mr. McDonough has been able to secure the best possible outcomes for a number of high-profile clients. The Atlanta Business Chronicle even dubbed him a “legal legend in suburbia” after he successfully exonerated Atlanta Falcons player Jonathan Babineaux from felony animal cruelty charges. This result was achieved despite the heated climate of Michael Vick recently pleading guilty to similar charges.

The Andersen, Tate & Carr criminal defense team has also been able to secure favorable outcomes or exonerations for high-profile NFL players, former Olympic stars, and State Senators.

However, our typical case focuses on helping the average person or their child secure their freedom and avoid long-term consequences that can come from criminal charges by having their case dismissed, their charges reduced, or their arrest expunged.
