Computer & 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.
