You Do Not Want An Assault Conviction On Your Record

If you have been accused of assault, it is critical that you act quickly and retain a lawyer to defend you. Do not plead guilty. Do not attempt to fight the charges on your own. The penalties for these types of charges are far too serious: fines, jail and a criminal record. Having assault on your record can be particularly damaging. This is not something that potential employers will overlook. It could cost you a job or worse.

Self-Defense And Other Defense Strategies In Assault Cases

When police arrive on the scene of an alleged assault, they may not spend a lot of time trying to sort out who started the altercation. Many people are charged when they were simply trying to defend themselves against an attack.

We will pick up where the police left off, taking the time to determine exactly what happened. If you were simply trying to protect yourself in a bar fight or a similar altercation, we will use that as part of the assault and battery defense strategy.

In addition to self-defense, there are other strategies that we may employ, depending on the situation. Our goal is to fight the charges, reduce the charges or minimize the impact the charges have on your life.
