Deep Georgia Roots And Moxie To Fight Assault Charges

Assault charges can come with serious penalties. People facing these charges deserve to have a skilled defense attorney by their side to guide them through the legal process and help them defend their rights, their reputation and their freedom.

At E.J. Boswell Law Office, I know the severe impact that an assault charge can have on both your life and the lives of your loved ones. I have a strong track record of defending people in Greensboro, Madison, Eatonton and other central Georgia communities against these serious charges. I have also assisted nonresidents vacationing in the Lake Oconee area with navigating the local court system successfully.

What Is Assault Under Georgia Law?

In Georgia, assault includes attempts to injure another person or to act in a way that causes a person to believe that they are at immediate risk of harm. This means that a person does not actually have to touch another person to face assault charges. Penalties can include up to one year in jail and fines of up to $1,000 for many cases. In some circumstances, charges can be escalated and the accused may face even more serious penalties.

If the authorities charge you with assault, you may feel overwhelmed and uncertain about the next steps to take. My team and I are committed to answering your questions and offering honest, straightforward guidance as you navigate the legal system. I will represent your interests in and out of court and help you protect your rights.
