Augusta Domestic Violence Lawyer

Get the Right Georgia Assault Lawyer to Protect Your Future

It can all happen so quickly. Perhaps you found yourself in the wrong bar at the wrong time. Maybe it was a domestic argument that got out of hand. Often, it is all the result of a misunderstanding. No matter the reason, if you have been charged with assault or domestic violence, you are facing a conviction as a violent offender. You need to do everything possible to protect your freedom and your future.

I am Georgia criminal defense attorney Pete Theodocion. Prior to opening my criminal defense law practice in 1997, I served as an assistant prosecutor for the district attorney, where my job was to prosecute assault and domestic assault charges to the fullest extent of the law. For the past 15 years, I have been using my experience and knowledge of the state criminal justice system to protect the rights and freedoms of people charged with misdemeanor and felony assault charges, including vehicular assault arising out of a DUI accident.

Thorough Investigations to Get to the Facts and to Keep You Out of Jail

A successful legal defense for a violent crime such as assault or domestic violence often comes down to he-said-she-said. At the scene of the crime, police are likely to arrest everyone within handcuff range in order to restore order. I go the extra mile to thoroughly investigate the scene and get the facts from the witnesses present. With confirmed, eyewitness evidence in hand, a felony assault charge can often be dismissed or reduced to a lesser charge by the prosecutor.

If you are facing charges for domestic assault, it doesn't necessarily mean you will face jail time. Most communities in Georgia offer education and rehabilitation programs for first-time offenders. If you successfully complete the program, your conviction will typically be set aside. I do everything possible to find a program that is right for you and your family.
