Patrick J. McDonough is among the most sought after and accomplished criminal defense attorneys in the State of Georgia. He has received national attention from the media being featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Sports Illustrated, and Forbes as well as statewide recognition from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Gwinnett Daily Post, WSB-TV, WXIA-TV, WAMZ(Macon)-TV, and 680 the Fan Radio. The Atlanta Business Chronicle recently dubbed Mr. McDonough a "legal legend in suburbia" after successfully exonerating Atlanta Falcon player, Jonathan Babineaux, from felony animal cruelty charges during the heated climate of Michael Vick's guilty plea to similar charges. Mr. McDonough was recently named Georgia Super Lawyer by his peers in Atlanta Magazine.

Mr. McDonough heads up the criminal defense division for Andersen, Tate & Carr. His criminal practice includes both state and federal white-collar and general criminal defense.
