Mr. Head is the sole owner of William C. Head PC, and acts in an “of counsel” role at Kohn & Yager, LLC, one of the top-rated criminal defense and DUI law firms in Georgia. Both Larry Kohn and Cory Yager have spent their entire legal careers working side by side with Mr. Head. Their law firm in Sandy Springs provides a FREE consultation to prospective clients facing a DUI prosecution (felony or misdemeanor) or felony criminal offense in the State of Georgia.

In addition to being known as an award-winning trial lawyer for criminal cases, Mr. Head has handled civil litigation cases for his whole career. Super Lawyers lists him for this category, too. Because a related auto accident may have been the basis for police contact with his clients, the veteran injury attorney in Georgia often handles the entire case or refers out cases to another personal injury lawyer, if a conflict exists or the crash was in another state.
