What Is a Defense Attorney?

A defense attorney is a legal professional who works to represent individuals or organizations who have been accused of committing a crime or who are facing criminal charges. The primary role of a defense attorney is to defend their client's interests and ensure that their legal rights are protected during the course of the criminal justice process.
Defense attorneys work to investigate the case against their client, review and evaluate the evidence, and formulate a strong legal defense strategy. They can negotiate plea bargains with prosecutors, reason on behalf of their clients in court, cross-examine potential witnesses, and present evidence that supports their client's innocence or reduces the severity of the charges. At Balbo & Gregg, Attorneys at Law, PC, our team does just that. We provide strong representation to people in Georgia and beyond who have been accused of all types of misdemeanor and felony crimes.

Criminal Cases We Handle

Our criminal defense attorneys in Richmond are ready to defend you for the following charges:

Domestic Violence
Domestic violence laws are covered under the Family Violence Act in Georgia. Family violence can refer to any felony or any of the following crimes committed against a family member: assault and battery, stalking, criminal damage to property, criminal trespass, or unlawful restraint. Victims can obtain a protection order for safety under the law.

Theft Crimes
Theft can be committed various ways in the state of Georgia. Anyone can be charged with theft if they illegally take possession of another's property. Even the intent to deprive another of his or her property can be considered theft. This offense can also occur through the means of conversion or deception. Under Georgia law, theft can also include stolen services.

Driving Under the Influence
After an arrest for driving under the influence (DUI), you have only 10 days to request an administrative hearing that could help you keep your driver's license. If you have been charged with DUI, our firm can thoroughly review every aspect of your case while looking for a means to obtain a dismissal or reduction in the charge. We can fight for your rights every step of the way.

Drug Crimes
The state of Georgia takes drug crimes very seriously. Criminal courts in Georgia impose heavy penalties for these crimes, which can damage your future. If you have been charged with possession, manufacturing, trafficking, or selling of any type of drug, we will construct a strong defense for you.

Various statutes have been set in place to deal with each separate circumstance of homicide. Any killing of another human being, unless justified under the law, is considered homicide. Murder and manslaughter are classified as homicide crimes. Although all homicide crimes are serious, the intent of the individual will influence the extent of punishment.

Sex Crimes
Sex crimes in the state of Georgia can have a drastic effect on your future. Sex offenses can include child pornography, sexual assault, sexual battery, rape, date rape, or molestation. Consequences of a sex crime conviction can be severe, including heavy fines, imprisonment, and mandatory registration as a sex offender.

Child Pornography
Individuals who are accused of a sex offense involving child pornography will not be let off easily. With mandatory sex offender registration, you could be greatly limited in terms of where you can live and work in the future. In many cases, child pornography is an internet sex crime, which means that most evidence will be gathered from a computer.

Traffic Offenses
If you receive a traffic ticket in Georgia, you have several options. First, you can admit guilt and pay the fine. Or, you may attempt to fight the charge with the legal assistance of our firm. If you choose to plead not guilty, you must appear in court on the date written on your ticket. We can help you fight the traffic offense to keep it off your record.
