Learn more about Mr. Richman and his years as a prosecutor.

As a distinguished member of the Georgia Bar, I have a wealth of experience representing clients across an extensive array of legal challenges. My practice has successfully navigated the complexities of the legal system for clients involved in serious criminal cases in Federal, Superior, and State Courts, including, sexual assault, child abuse, internet-related offenses, financial fraud, and all forms of domestic disputes.

Additionally, I have advanced training in handling cases of abusive head trauma, shaken baby syndrome, child molestation, and child pornography.

On the misdemeanor side, I have handled thousands of cases - both as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney - involving DUI (Driving Under the Influence), BUI (Boating Under the Influence), underage drinking, drug-related offenses, domestic violence, and probation violations. My commitment is to provide top-tier legal representation, ensuring that each client receives personalized attention and a robust defense strategy tailored to their unique circumstances. My proven track record in both State and Superior Courts underscores my dedication to justice and excellence in legal advocacy.


Protecting Your Rights & Defending Your Freedom

If you have been arrested and charged with a criminal offense in North Georgia including Cumming, Dahlonega and the surrounding areas, you may feel overwhelmed and worried about your future. Many people are unsure of where to turn or who to trust to ensure that their rights are protected and their freedoms defended. Searching the internet does not help either. You likely have found lawyer after lawyer with 4 and 5-star reviews and do not know what separates them from one another. Here are two easy questions I recommend asking yourself:

  • “Was this lawyer a former prosecutor?”
  • “When I hire this firm, will I get this lawyer or an associate?”

If the lawyer you hired to defend you in criminal court never played on the other team, how would he know their common strategies?

Would you be upset if you hired someone, but you came to court and were represented by another lawyer? I would be.

I am Andrew J. Richman,a criminal defense attorney in Georgia, and I can help you if you face charges in Cumming and Dahlonega and North Georgia.

At Richman Law Firm, I offer my clients:

  • Former prosecutorial experience
  • Years of legal knowledge
  • 24/7 availability
  • Personalized defense
  • Free initial consultation
  • Trusted and qualified counsel

An arrest is not a conviction

What many people do not realize is that an arrest is not a conviction. Just because you were charged with a crime does not mean that you will be found guilty of the allegations. The criminal process requires that evidence be brought forth against you and that prosecutors formally try you in order for a judge or jury to determine whether you are guilty of a criminal act.

When you work with Richman Law Firm, I can aggressively pursue a personalized and strong defense for your case and help protect you from a serious criminal conviction. However, it is important that you work fast! The more time you spend searching for an attorney, the more time the prosecutor has to build a case against you. Therefore, I highly recommend that you contact Richman Law Firm immediately.


As a former prosecutor, I have seen how a criminal conviction can greatly change the course of an individual's life. I know that having an attorney on your side can make all the difference in the outcome of your case. I am proud to have earned numerous awards and accolades that stand as a testament to the dedication and hard work I devote to each case.

Sincea 2013, I have continued to receive Avvo's Client’s Choice award for Top Criminal Defense Attorney. Each client who retains my assistance receives direct, one-on-one attention from me. I strive to make myself available to each and every client 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in addition to providing clients with weekly case updates. I encourage active participation by my clients and work to provide them with the defense that they deserve.

No case is too big or too small for our criminal attorneys to handle:
