Arrested After Acting In Self-Defense

If you are being attacked, or are in fear for your life, you have the right to use force — even deadly force — to protect yourself.

The lawyer at Hirsch Criminal Defense, will help you prove it.

Stand Your Ground Laws In Georgia And How They Work

Under Georgia’s “stand your ground” laws, there is no duty to retreat. Individuals cannot be found guilty for killing an individual in self-defense. If you believe you or another is in imminent threat of serious bodily harm or death, you can use deadly force for protection.

At Hirsch Criminal Defense, attorney Hirsch thoroughly investigates the circumstances surrounding the alleged criminal event. He works hard to uncover evidence of earlier threats or disputes, cross-examine witnesses to reveal inconsistencies and biases in their stories, and build a strong criminal defense campaign that proves his client acted in self-defense.

You have the right to protect your home. If someone forcibly enters your home, putting you, your family and your property at risk, you have the right to use deadly force to protect yourself, your family and your property.
