Meet Adam Levin
I live and breathe criminal defense. That means when I accept a case, I work from day one to meticulously pick apart the prosecution’s case and leverage your narrative to obtain the best result possible.
I’m a criminal defense lawyer based in Athens, GA. For the last 15 years, I’ve defended the most serious criminal cases all across Georgia. The last 10 years of my career were focused on defending clients facing the death penalty.
My father was a partner at some of the most distinguished law firms in Georgia. As a young boy, I spent weekends following him around at work, watching and absorbing what it means to be a dedicated practitioner of the law. I’ve taken his relentless and detail oriented approach to the law and have been applying it to help my clients since 2007.
Part of what my parents instilled in me was a passion for education. After graduating cum laude from the University of Miami and cum laude from Georgia State College of Law (where I was technical editor of the law review), I’ve continued to hone my legal skills through formal and informal educational opportunities, having attended the National Criminal Defense College and numerous other trial skills courses. I spend a large part of my day reviewing new case law and crafting unique motions to deploy in my cases.
Equally important to education was my parents’ insistence on helping others. I spent the first 15 years of my career dedicated to helping people without the monetary resources necessary to push back on criminal charges, receiving the Georgia Bar’s Commitment to Justice Award in recognition of my service. I continue to volunteer with Citizens Advocacy and regularly donate to other non-profits that help people caught in the criminal justice system. At the root of my passion as a criminal defense lawyer is a desire to help other people.
My wife, Paige, who shares my passion for helping others, has dedicated a large portion of her nursing career as a hospice nurse. Together, we hope to instill our passion for service in our two children.
When I look back on my life so far it often seems that everything I’ve done and experienced has helped shape me into an effective advocate. Let me know how I can advocate for you.
