Savannah Aggravated Assault Attorney

We know our clients come to us during the scariest times of their lives, and we value the trust they put in us. We can spend the time with them that their situation deserves by taking on fewer clients and taking cases that truly matter.

How Do We Defend an Aggravated Assault Case?

We aggressively investigate the case, the facts, the people, and meticulously go through the police reports, detective summaries, search warrants, body camera footage, and physical evidence. Each case is different, so the most effective defense for your case will be tailored for you. Some common defenses include:

  • • Proving your innocence – with an alibi witness or physical records;
  • • Attacking the prosecutor’s case – highlighting the holes and incomplete police work;
  • • Showing you acted in self-defense – of yourself, of others, or of property; and
  • • Disproving elements of the charges – showing you acted without intent or that the object used was not a deadly weapon.
