Gwinnett County Assault & Battery Lawyers
Experienced Representation in Walton & Clarke Counties
Assault and battery are normally charged together, though these two terms have different meanings. A criminal charge of assault and battery carries a different definition and burden of proof rather than a civil complaint of either act alone. Knowing the differences between these two terms can help you protect your legal interests and rights. If you are convicted of assault and battery, you will face long-term consequences, which is why it important to get help from Gwinnett County criminal defense lawyers. Call Crawford and Boyle, LLC, today to schedule your free consultation.
Effective Strategies to Protect Your Future
If a defendant is facing charges for the battery, they will also face assault charges. However, if a defendant has not inflicted harm on another person, they might only face assault charges. For this reason, it is important to consult with and hire an experienced criminal defense attorney who can come up with the right defense strategy that can protect the defendant’s best interest.
Some effective strategies could include:
- Self-defense: Not all violent acts occur unprovoked. In cases where a person feels their safety is threatened, or that the safety of another or their property is threatened, there may be a case to prove they acted lawfully.
- Consent: While the state of Georgia does not look kindly upon any acts of aggressive violence, the equal involvement between the two parties could make a strong case for the innocence of the accused.
