About this pro

I work as a criminal defense lawyer because I believe that even if you make a mistake, you still have rights that need to be defended. I can help you, as I have helped hundreds of others, defend your rights in court. I have a lot of clients, but just having a lot of clients in the past doesn't do you much good. However, because I've treated them with respect and compassion, and showing you the way we've worked together, plus all the experience I've gained, can show you why my clients say that James Dutton is definitely one of the best Criminal Defense Lawyers in Georgia. I'll defend DUI/DWI, felonies of all stripes, fraud and other "white collar" crimes, juveniles (youth) in trouble, drug charges, even violent crimes like assault.
