Arson

Atlanta Arson Lawyers

Rely on Knowledgeable & Trial-Tested Legal Representation

A simple spark or a piece of ash can quickly ignite into a firestorm that decimates a person’s home or property. In Georgia, arson is a felony offense that often leads to serious criminal penalties, including: imprisonment, costly fines, and a life-changing criminal record. Unfortunately, the police are quick to make arrests when something is on fire, and rarely question a defendant’s innocence, circumstances, or motives. Likewise, prosecutors are usually more concerned with securing a conviction than ensuring justice.

At Ross & Pines, LLC, we take great pride in offering personalized legal services, compassionate guidance, and trial-tested criminal defense representation to the residents of Georgia. We understand that being arrested and charged with a criminal offense is a frightening and overwhelming experience. But when your freedom and future are on the line, you need to retain the services of an experienced and resourceful legal representative as soon as possible. Fortunately, our legal team is comprised of three former prosecutors who are intimately familiar with both sides of this challenging legal process. By investigating your case and listening to your story, we can develop an effective defense strategy that aims to secure a charge reduction, case dismissal, or acquittal.


We aren’t afraid to litigate on your behalf in court. Contact Ross & Pines, LLC at (888) 838-4858 to explore your legal options with a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer.


The Definition of Arson in Georgia

Per Georgia Code Title 16. Crimes and Offenses § 16-7-60, an offender can face first-, second-, or third degree charges for intentionally and maliciously setting a fire or causing an explosion. In fact, a person can even be arrested for encouraging, hiring, or helping someone else commit the crime.

You could face the following legal penalties for an arson conviction in Georgia:

  • First degree arson: 1-20 years in prison and/or a $50,000 fine.
  • Second degree arson: 1-10 years in prison and/or a fine up to $25,000.
  • Third degree arson: 1-5 years in prison and/or a fine up to $10,000.

At Ross & Pines, LLC, we have a comprehensive understanding of the various state and federal laws that can influence the outcome of your case. We also know that cookie-cutter solutions never win cases; for this reason, we take great pride in constructing personalized case strategies that embody our clients’ legal needs and objectives.

As former prosecutors, we know how to conduct a detailed investigation and are skilled in both utilizing and challenging evidence. During your confidential consultation, we can discuss your charges and the events that led to your arrest. Once we’re armed with this information, we can start developing a defense strategy that proves the damage was accidental or an act requested by the property owner and/or any other appropriate parties. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may even be able to prove that the damage in question wasn’t caused by fire or explosives.
