Savannah Neighborhood Crime Prevention
“Neighborhood leaders want homeowners across Savannah to light up their homes in a city wide effort to deter crime and brighten neighborhoods,” according to WSAV reports. In July, the Downtown Savannah Neighborhood Association partnered with police, Phillips Electric and The Home Depot to hand out hundreds of L.E.D. light bulbs to home owners in an effort to reduce opportunistic crime.
In August, Savannah Police teamed up with neighbors for National Night Out, a campaign to strengthen community and law enforcement partnerships for a safer Savannah.
Savannah Apartment Crime Prevention
Savannah apartment residents have a right to protect their families and feel safe and secure in their homes. While home owners are able to protect their families and reduce community crime through security measures, such as lighting, landscaping, and neighborhood watches, apartment residents are typically unable to control property security measures and access controls.
As such, Georgia apartment owners have a responsibility to protect their residents from violent crime, sexual assault, and foreseeable harm. Should a property owner fail in this critical duty, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries or wrongful deaths which occur as a consequence.
Victims of Savannah Apartment Assault or Injury: What Are My Legal Options for Justice and Compensation?
As each case and property is unique, victims of violent apartment crime should speak with an experienced security negligence firm as soon as possible to ensure all evidence, such as surveillance footage or broken lighting, is preserved and their best interests are protected.

Choosing the Right Attorney
Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.
Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!
You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:
A LAWYER “SHALL NOT” CONTACT A PROSPECTIVE CLIENT THROUGH A “LIVE TELEPHONE” OR AN “IN-PERSON” VISIT.
– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.
If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.
Contingency Fees Disclaimer: “Contingent attorneys’ fees refers only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client.”
