Criminal Defense

Criminal Defense Lawyers

In America, the criminally accused are presumed innocent until proven guilty.  While this ideal sounds good in theory, it is not always followed in practice.  If you have been charged with a crime, you should speak with an attorney immediately to make sure your rights will be protected.

A criminal conviction could have severe consequences and may impose serious restrictions on your personal freedom and liberty.  Our firm represents clients in a variety of criminal matters, including traffic violations, misdemeanors, and felonies in municipal, juvenile, state, and superior courts throughout the state of Georgia. Our attorneys at Batten & Batten will zealously represent you against the following criminal charges:

  • Homicide
  • Assault and Battery
  • Kidnapping, False Imprisonment, and Related Offenses
