"I have practiced criminal law all of my career, on 'both sides,' as both a long time prosecutor and defense attorney, and I know all of the tips and strategy to obtain the best result possible for your case. "
I am a Waycross native, having graduated from Ware County High School in 1999. After high school, I attended the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia where I graduated with a degree in Philosophy. I then went to Mercer Law School in Macon, Georgia, graduating with a Juris Doctor in Law in 2006.
I had the honor of clerking for the Superior Court judges in the Macon Judicial Circuit after graduation, where I specialized as the law clerk in death penalty cases. I had the opportunity to learn from Georgia's best criminal defense attorneys on capital cases. In 2008, I began as a prosecutor in the Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit near Macon. I was trained early and on to try major felony jury trials. I would continue that for five years, when a job opened up in the Waycross District Attorney's office, where again I was assigned to every criminal case --from drugs, to kidnapping, rape, armed robbery, and murder. I took that trial experience and the knowledge of how the 'other side' works, and opened The Poole Law Group. I have extensive courtroom experience and I have tried hundreds of motions, probation revocations, and jury trials. That familiarity in the courtroom is something that comes with much experience and practice--and I am in court a lot. That experience is invaluable for your case, and I have almost twenty years logged in courtrooms.
