Atlanta Violent Crimes Lawyers

In Georgia, with the exception of Battery, violent crimes are usually felonies, which carry very lengthy terms of incarceration and generally do not become eligible for parole quickly, if at all. Murder, Manslaughter, Aggravated Battery, Aggravated Assault, Kidnapping, False Imprisonment, Cruelty to Children, Elder Abuse, Armed Robbery, and Home Invasion are all considered to be violent crimes.

A conviction for a majority of violent crimes can result in life imprisonment. Because of the seriousness of the crime and the severity of the punishment, a lot of individuals, who are charged with a violent crime, end up in a jury trial. Our criminal defense attorneys gained most of their trial experience by defending clients, who were accused of committing violent crimes, during jury trials. Our experienced criminal defense trial lawyers have obtained many “Not Guilty” verdicts after jury trials for violent crimes, including Battery, Aggravated Assault, Armed Robbery, Home Invasion, Kidnapping, and Murder.
