Computer & Internet Crimes

Protection Against Charges of Online Internet Crimes

If you have been charged with a computer-based crime, it likely means serious trouble. In most such cases, state or federal investigators have been monitoring suspects and collecting data on computer activity for months. Any crime that involves the use of a computer or the internet could result in immediate confiscation of all personal and business computer hardware and digital files.

With this in mind, it is imperative for the accused to work with experienced, technologically savvy legal representation. At Conaway & Strickler, P.C., we work to challenge and counteract the aggressive tactics of criminal investigators and prosecuting attorneys at every stage of the investigation, negotiation and trial. With offices in Atlanta our attorneys have nearly 50 years of combined experience defending clients throughout the U.S. Indeed, founding attorney Meg Strickler is the current co-chair of the iTech Cyber Crime Committee, and is recognized as one of the leading defense lawyers in the field.

Contact our firm today to discuss your unique case and circumstances with an attorney who can go to work for you immediately. If you have received a phone call from a government agency or a subpoena, call us now at (404) 816-5000.

We collaborate with technical forensic specialists on examination of all types of technical devices.

We understand how to capture and organize digital evidence (critical dates, downloaded material, web history, transaction records, etc.).

Many of our clients have never committed a crime before, and ought not to have been charged now. We prove the intended actions of our clients. We place the burden of proof squarely on the prosecution, and we are prepared to combat cases at the state and federal levels.

Thank you for your magnificent representation of our son in court today. It seemed like everyone in the courtroom was against him, and you were his champion. My wife and I will never forget how you stood up in court for our son today. Thank you for saving him from jail and getting him a second chance at life. Peter and Darcy

Our family wants to thank Conaway and Strickler for their professional and hard work in this case. We never thought this nightmare was going to be over so soon. With receiving a No Bill from the Grand Jury, my employer has given me my job back. This has been by far a true miracle. The R. Family
