Atlanta Violent Crime Attorney
Fight for Your Future with Ross & Pines
Violent crimes are some of the most heavily prosecuted crimes in Georgia. Many lawyers shy away from representing people charged with violent crimes because they are not comfortable representing someone accused of seriously injuring or killing another person. At Ross & Pines, we are not afraid to take on these cases. In fact, many lawyers refer us cases that involve allegations of armed robbery, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and murder because they know that we are willing and able to handle these cases.
These other lawyers, and everyone who has ever dealt with the lawyers at Ross & Pines, also know that we will thoroughly investigate the facts and circumstances surrounding the allegations and build a solid defense to protect your rights and your future; that we will explore defenses, such as self-defense, and work to get your case dismissed without you ever having to face a jury; that we will not be intimidated by police officers and prosecutors and we will stand up to them; and that we will fight for your freedom in the courtroom.
If you under investigation for allegedly committing a violent crime, it is important that you contact a criminal defense lawyer from Ross & Pines to discuss your case.

Self Defense & Immunity from Prosecution Many people are arrested and charged with a violent crime when in reality they were acting in self-defense. It is often said that when a fight occurs, the winner goes to jail and the loser goes to the hospital. This is because the police officers who respond to the scene were not present when everything started, and they often take the side of the person who was more severely injured regardless of who was the initial aggressor. However, these officers fail to take into consideration you have the right to defend yourself, and that Georgia law specifically grants immunity to anyone acting in self-defense. At Ross & Pines, we defend people charged with violent crimes and those acting in self-defense. We know how to build a solid defense to get your charges dismissed at an immunity hearing or win your case at trial.
Our firm urges you to retain representation if you were arrested for:
- Murder & Manslaughter
- Assault & Battery
- Aggravated Assault & Aggravated Battery
- Armed Robbery & Robbery
- Child abuse
- Hate crimes
- Terrorism or terrorist acts
- Gang crimes
A conviction for a violent offense can follow you around for the rest of your life. If you are able to escape the death penalty or life in prison, you will be facing parole, probation, mandatory anger management courses, fines and restitution and a permanent strike against your record. Convictions make it difficult to obtain housing, employment and licenses and you will lose your right to purchase a firearm.
