About the Author:

Parag Y. Shah is a criminal defense attorney in Atlanta, Georgia. He represents indigent clients in felony cases for the Atlanta Judicial Circuit Public Defender s Office, which services all of Fulton County. Mr. Shah graduated from Choate Rosemary Hall in 1999 and went on to receive a BA in Political Science from Rhodes College in 2003. In 2006, he obtained a Juris Doctor from Ohio Northern University and became a member of the Georgia Bar.


The Code provides a pocket-sized, concise, practical reference to the Georgia code and also includes caselaw references. It's an excellent alternative to hauling around the official code book, which is often impractical to carry around from courtroom to courtroom on a daily basis. --Charles M. Clapp, esq.

This is a great book for new and old attorneys alike. It is small enough to fit in your purse (or pocket) and it has all of the information that you would ever need to reference when you are in court. The elements of crimes are explained in brief but complete and helpful detail; the sentence ranges are included and are easily identified in gray boxes at the end of the section. In addition, alternative sentencing is explained in an appendix and the recidivist statute is explained. I would highly recommend this book to any attorney practicing criminal law who wants helpful information at their fingertips. --Martha Woods, esq.
