Atlanta Criminal Defense Attorney

An experienced and dedicated attorney fighting for your rights

For more than 30 years attorney Jake Arbes has been assisting clients charged with serious state and federal criminal offenses. Although Mr. Arbes’ practice is centered in Georgia, he has handled high profile post-conviction criminal cases all over the country. He successfully represented a banker who was allowed to withdraw his guilty plea in a politically charged case which the media called “Iraqgate”. He was appellate co-counsel for a defendant in one of the largest insurance and bankruptcy frauds in history, a case that took more than nine months to try in Florida. Most recently, Mr. Arbes won federal parole for an inmate in California who served more than 30 years for murdering a DEA agent. The inmate had repeatedly been denied parole until Mr. Arbes took his case. Mr. Arbes has handled hundreds of post-conviction cases involving state parole, sentence reduction, appeals, habeas corpus, prison designations and transfers.
