Simple Assault

This is the most common type of assault charge, usually resulting from a physical altercation between two people. Simple assault is defined as an attempt or threat to cause bodily harm to another person. In Georgia, simple assault is a misdemeanor, which carries a penalty of up to one year in jail and fines. However, the penalties may be more severe if the assault involves a weapon or causes serious injury.

Aggravated Assault

Aggravated assault is a more serious offense than simple assault. It involves causing severe bodily harm to another person or using a deadly weapon to threaten or harm someone. The penalties for aggravated assault are more stringent than simple assault and can include several years in prison, hefty fines and a criminal record.

Domestic Assault

Domestic assault is a type of assault that occurs between people who are in a domestic relationship. This includes spouses, romantic partners and family members. Domestic assault can be either simple or aggravated assault, depending on the severity of the situation. Penalties for domestic assault can be more severe than other types of assault, and they may also include a restraining order or mandatory counseling.

Sexual Assault

Sexual assault is a type of assault that involves unwanted sexual contact or behavior. This can include rape, sexual battery and other forms of sexual misconduct. Sexual assault is a serious crime that can result in significant penalties, including imprisonment, fines and registration as a sex offender.

Assault with a Deadly Weapon

Assault with a deadly weapon involves using a weapon to threaten or harm another person. This can include guns, knives and other dangerous weapons.

    Mr. Manciagli has done so much in so little time. In less than one month he was able to contact the courts and got me early termination for my supervised release. I am so grateful, he works fast and always stayed in contact with me. I highly recommend my attorney to everyone I am very satisfied with Mr. Manciagli. Very grateful to him for all he has done since the day I met him. He's just the best.


    Mr. Manciagli has lived and traveled all over the world, including Latin America, and his legal work has taken him to Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, and Jamaica. It was important for me, as a foreigner in the U.S., to have an attorney who understood me from a cultural level and who I could speak to in Spanish. If you or a loved one needs a criminal defense attorney, Jeff Manciagli is the attorney you should call.


    Jeff was recommended by a friend. I am very pleased with the way my case was handled & the outcome was very satisfactory. I would recommend him.


    Entered into a drug case (1/2 oz of molly & 1g. of marijuana)..... I have 3+ felonies....Jeff got me 6 months house arrest & probation.....definite prison time without him.......reasonable priced....Thanks Jeff.


    My lawyer in FL recommended Jeff when I got arrested in GA and didn't know what to do. I got pulled over in a cash-cow speed trap town 20 miles above the state line and they called a K-9 unit and got probable cause to search my car. I was livid and felt so violated. Luckily I hired the best of the best. Jeff always called/emailed me back promptly when I had questions about my case, and Always spoke to me as an equal. He took care of everything and when it came time to go to court was honest and logical in discussing what was best and how my plea would affect my future. Under his council I felt calm and in control. I was facing 3 misdemeanor charges and got them all dropped on the condition that I do a small amount of community service, pay a fine, and don't get in any more trouble for a few months. I didn't even get points on my license for the original speeding ticket. At the end of the day, money is replaceable- my time and freedom are not. If I or anyone I know ever has trouble in GA again, I will be calling Jeff.
