Tenacious Georgia Defense Lawyer Represents Clients Charged with Assault and Battery

Criminal defense attorney asserts your rights against violent crime charges in the Roswell area

If you are charged with assault or battery, you may be facing prison time. You need an attorney who is determined and serious about fighting for you, one with the experience and knowledge to succeed. At Swank Law Group, I aggressively defend individuals in the Roswell area and throughout Georgia who've been charged with assault or battery. I will fight for your rights in the criminal justice system as I seek the best possible outcome under the facts of your case.

Knowledgeable counselor understands assault and battery charges

Generally, assault is the threat of violence, and battery is any violent or unwanted touching. These charges vary by state, and the names of the two crimes are often used interchangeably. In some states, they are not considered separate offenses. Actions such as hitting, kicking, punching or pushing are considered to be assaults. Many other actions such as grabbing or spitting can also lead to these charges. I present a formidable defense to all types of assault and battery charges.

Proven advocate handles a range of assault cases

Assaults occur for a variety of reasons. Many assault or battery charges stem from simple fights. In these cases, I will work to show that you were acting in self-defense and are not a violent criminal. Other assaults are gang-related or occur in conjunction with other crimes such as robbery. Assaults of a sexual nature are treated differently by the law. In all cases, I will decisively defend your freedom.

Skilled defense lawyer works to reduce assault charges

Most states have a variety of assault charges such as aggravated assault or assault in the first degree. Depending on the facts of your case, the state may choose to charge you with a higher-level crime than is necessary. I will work to get your charges reduced through a variety of pretrial motions. I also fight to get clients the most lenient sentence possible under the circumstances.
