Savannah Criminal Attorney William Turner

Savannah Criminal Attorney Joey TurnerAttorney Joey Turner knew he wanted to be a lawyer from a young age. Inspired by his love of reading, politics, and history, he pursued a legal degree where he developed a passion for criminal justice and helping people in a time of need.

“It always felt like the little guy versus the man,” Turner said. That drive to “root for the underdog” drives his practice. Joey has a reputation for winning seemingly hopeless cases.

Experienced, Authoritative, Media Savvy

Mr. Turner can regularly be seen in the local evening news and has been mentioned by major news organization such as: The New York Times, Washington Post, Time Magazine, the Atlanta Journal Constitution, and the Savannah Morning News as well as on CBS News, NBC, and ABC News. He is regularly called upon to discuss high-profile, high-stakes criminal cases.

An Uncompromising Defense

Prior to opening his private practice, Joey served as a prosecutor for many years. He uses this experience to his clients’ benefit. His background serves him well before ever appearing in court – he prepares for each case as though it’s going to trial. By preparing better than the prosecution, Turner regularly gets cases dismissed or reduced.

When cheaper, less experienced attorneys would take a plea deal, Joey steps up to the plate. His boldness and work ethic gives his clients an edge – he’s not afraid of a fight, and he does the work to prepare, including gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and investigating cases.

Telling Your Story

The courtroom is a battlefield where the best storyteller wins. Mr. Turner uses this to his advantage. He knows how to talk to a jury. With the barrage of information flying at people every day and the many crime dramas on TV depicting thrilling theatrics, juries want to be entertained. Joey makes them care by telling your side of the story in a way that captures their attention.

His clients come to him at some of the worst times in their lives. He started his practice to help them get through that trauma and come out the other side with a favorable outcome.
