Assault Lawyer | Simple and Aggravated

Gwinnett County Criminal Lawyers

A Georgia assault lawyer knows many successful assault defenses, including defense strategies for simple assault and aggravated assault. Simple assault is classified as a misdemeanor offense, and you can be arrested for this crime even if you never physically touched the supposed victim.

For example, if you verbally threatened violence against another person, you can be brought up on a charge of simple assault. A lot of our clients felt that they didn’t do anything that warranted calling the police and getting handcuffed.

Georgia assault lawyers Larry Kohn, Cory Yager, and Bubba Head want to hear your side of the story – who said or did what, and is the truth being told. Bullying can be a form of assault, whether at school or in the workplace. We have clients who were the initially bullied for an extended period of time, until our client fought back and was then arrested for assaulting the bully.

What’s the Difference Between Simple and Aggravated Assault?

Aggravated assault is a far more serious charge than simple assault, and almost always is categorized as a felony offense. This means that jail time is certain upon conviction. How much jail time served will depend on who the victim is.
