Atlanta Criminal Defense Lawyers
The Atlanta criminal defense attorneys at Garland, Samuel & Loeb are among the most accomplished criminal defense attorneys in the southeastern United States. Our firm’s founder, Reuben Garland, gained fame for defending the man accused of bombing The Temple on October 12, 1958.
Don Samuel and Ed Garland, two of the firm’s partners, successfully represented Ray Lewis, linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens, who was indicted for a double homicide on Super Bowl Sunday in Atlanta. Midway through his 2001 trial, all murder charges against him were dropped. The firm also represented Jim Williams, the protagonist in the nonfiction book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, who was acquitted of murder in his fourth trial.
Since its inception, Garland, Samuel & Loeb has displayed a commitment to vigorously defending those accused of serious crimes. The firm’s founder, Reuben Garland, traveled the back roads of Georgia, defending both white and African-American clients, often saving the latter from “mob justice.” To this day, the lawyers of Garland, Samuel & Loeb strongly adhere to their commitment to tenacious advocacy.
