Aggravated Assault Defense Attorneys in Paulding County
Protecting Clients in Cobb, Douglas & the Surrounding Areas
In Georgia, it is illegal to threaten or willfully inflict violence against someone else unless the threat is made in self-defense or in the defense of others. While assault and battery are commonly used to describe the same act, they mean different things and carry different criminal penalties if the accused is convicted of one of these crimes. At Henrickson & Sereebutra, our Paulding County aggravated assault attorneys help those arrested for violent crimes tell their side of the story and obtain the best possible outcome for their situation.

Assault vs. Battery
Once you are arrested for assault or battery, the clock starts ticking for you to craft a defense and bring light to the suspicions raised by your prosecutors. During your free consultation, our team at Henrickson & Sereebutra can help you understand the laws and how they apply in your case.
As far as criminal consequences go, assault is the threat of violence, while battery is the use of physical force against someone else. If you are convicted of either crime—simple assault or assault and battery—you could face fines of up to $1,000 and a jail sentence of up to one year.
If the battery victim suffered serious injuries, you may be charged with aggravated battery, and a conviction could put you in prison for 20 years.
Defending Yourself Against the Charges
Nothing is more important than your freedom. If you are convicted of a violent crime, you could lose out on important opportunities for your future due to having a criminal record suggesting you are a dangerous person. At Henrickson & Sereebutra, our team can help you show that you are not the villain that the prosecutors make you out to be.
We may be able to show that you:
- Acted in defense of self or others
- Accidentally hurt someone else
- Had no intention to cause physical injury
- Engaged in a consensual violent act
- Had a reasonable alibi
It is crucial that you exonerate yourself and get the best possible outcome for your situation. Do not let a criminal charge destroy your future.
