The Law Office of Andrew R. Lynch aggressively defends those accused of violent misdemeanor crimes. The most common violent misdemeanor in Georgia is family violence battery, otherwise known as domestic violence. Defenses to a violent crime charge are almost as limitless as the ways in which people are arrested and accused of committing a violent crime.
Domestic violence is an especially dangerous charge for defendants to face. Persons facing a first lifetime arrest for family violence battery, if convicted, are facing jail, years of probation, and typically six months of court ordered counseling. Also, it should be noted if someone is an immigrant a conviction for family violence can lead to deportation. If a Defendant is facing a second family violence battery prosecution it will be indicted and prosecuted as a felony.
Violent misdemeanor crimes include:
- Family Violence Battery
- Assault and Battery
- Obstruction of an officer
- Disorderly conduct

Lynch, we fight hard to protect you from being convicted. We prepare every case as if it is going to trial because this how we are able to obtain the best outcome for you.
