Whether you have been charged with assault or battery, it is important that you retain the representation of an experienced Atlanta criminal defense attorney as soon as possible after your arrest.

Contact the Atlanta assault and battery lawyers at Ross & Pines today to discuss how to defend these serious charges.


What's The Difference Between Assault and Battery?

Assault is a separate charge from battery, but assault and battery are often charged together. While the term "assault and battery" is commonly referred to address an act of violence against another person, you can be charged with assault alone or in conjunction with battery. 

Simple Assault

Simple assault is a misdemeanor charge of attempting to commit a crime of violence against another person, like throwing a punch at someone that does not make contact. The mere threat of harm against another person may be enough to get you arrested for simple assault.

Simple Battery

Battery is a misdemeanor charge of making unwanted physical contact with another person, like a slap or a punch. If you have been charged with battery it is likely that you will also face assault charges.

Are Aggravated Assault & Battery Felonies?

Aggravated assault is a felony that occurs when someone commits an assault that involves a handgun, a deadly weapon, an object which can cause serious injury or death (like a car), or strangulation.

Aggravated battery is a felony that occurs when a person is seriously or permanently injured from unwanted physical contact, like knocking out someone’s teeth or causing a brain injury.
