We Create Real Solutions for People in Trouble
Factors that can lead to a first degree or felony charge of vehicular homicide are:
- Reckless Driving
- Unlawful Meeting or Overtaking of a School Bus
- Failing to Stop After a Collision or Hit & Run
- Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and/or Drugs
- Failing to Stop for, or Fleeing from, the Police
- Being Declared a Habitual Offender
In Georgia, the penalty for first-degree vehicular homicide includes 2 to 15 years in prison. If the accused is a habitual violator, a mandatory minimum of 1 year must be served in prison. Do what you can to avoid these harsh punishments. Do yourself and your family a favor by retaining the most experienced lawyers you can find. Too much is at stake to rely on an unproven, ill-prepared attorney right out of college, or who advertises heavily on television or online. Strong, effective criminal defense representation creating solutions for people in trouble—that is our mission every day at our firm.
If you e-mail or fax us, we will promptly respond to your message. If you reach us from a police station or jail after an arrest, we can arrange to meet with you there. Call (404) 471-3177!
I would recommend Seth without hesitation.- James
Thank You Nick, For Justice! The state of Georgia indicted me on two counts of Racketeering that I did not commit. Nick defended me with dedication, caring, and skillfulness in interacting with all parties involved. Against almost insurmountable odds, he was able to get my case dismissed. I will be eternally grateful for all he has done for me. I consider him a superb criminal defense attorney and also call him my friend!- Harley
Nick Lotito recently represented one of my close family members in a vehicular homicide case. He helped our family navigate through this incredibly traumatic experience with grace and compassion. He was organized, well prepared, and thorough. And always responded to our emails and phone calls immediately. Mr. Lotito truly went above and beyond every step of the way. Highly, highly recommended!- Perri Eichenlaub
Good and Knowledgeable I was in a bad situation at one point in my life, the Federal Government brought criminal action against me and I knew i had to be accountable for my action. I was looking for a good lawyer who specialized in criminal lawyer, one who has professional experience in a court room and could give me a good advice on what I needed to do. I interviewed three lawyers and someone told me about Nicholas Lotito, so I meet with him and we talked for hours, I was very impressed with his honesty, I was convinced and had no doubts or uncertainty that he was the person I needed to represent me. At the end of the trial everything worked out good. So thank you Mr. Lotito for the good work you did.- Abe
Highest Praise I chose Nick after interviewing many criminal lawyers. It was the best decision I could have made.- Peter
Exactly who you want on your side. Initially I hired Nick Lotito for a whistle blower case. I am convinced that BEING an EXPERT isn't ENOUGH, AUTHORITY matters! He conducts himself in such a way that even the government officers involved take his words for it. He involved the right people early on. At some point, it was very clear that litigation was not a favorable option. He explored various options and got me immigration relief. It is my opinion that in looking for counsel, look no further if you are looking for best outcome.- DV
