Jonathan Mitchell Kester Law Firm, LLC



When faced with a legal problem it is extremely important for every individual to have representation.  Many people make the mistake of believing that once they explain their circumstances to a judge or prosecutor that charges will be automatically dismissed or disputes will automatically be resolved.  Anyone with extensive experience with the court system will tell you that this is almost never the case.  In Georgia, the Court system is both vast and complex.  There are over 350 municipal courts in Georgia and while all are subject to State law, each court also has its own specific local rules and ordinances that apply.  What this means is that the method and strategy for obtaining a favorable result in one court may be completely different in another.  This limited example only explains the variances that exist in the municipal court system and does not begin to take into account the nuances which must be known to navigate the various Superior, State, Magistrate, Probate, and Juvenile Courts, each with their own rules and complexities.

The bottom line is that anyone that does not have a competent and experienced attorney goes into their case with a severe disadvantage and effectively forfeits their ability to make the law work for them.  The Jonathan Mitchell Kester Law Firm, LLC is dedicated to providing affordable and superior legal services for all of our clients.  We believe that the best result will occur when the client has received an honest and knowledgeable consultation followed by open communication and dialogue.  We protect all of our clients from wrongful conviction whether it is at trial or on appeal.  Our goal is to provide a resolution which takes into account not only the short term consequences of prosecution but also the long term consequences of an arrest and/or conviction.   

With over a decade of legal experience in both Georgia and Florida Law, our firm has represented thousands of clients throughout the southeast United States.  Allow the many years of trial, mediation, plea-bargaining, and professional consultation of the Jonathan Mitchell Kester Law Firm, LLC to work for you and your loved ones.
