Understanding the charges
Many people facing assault or battery charges find themselves in this situation unexpectedly: getting in a bar fight; using physical force against someone in order to protect personal property; making physical contact with another person perceived to be an act of violence.
Defending an individual charged with assault or battery requires a thorough understanding of the legal technicalities of these charges. Our law firm will actively investigate the charges to determine all possible defenses: was the defendant acting in self-defense? Did the defendant act reasonably in the situation? Was the defendant defending another person or their own personal property? After we understand the charges a client is facing, we can immediately begin crafting an aggressive defense.
Our law firm defends people charged with misdemeanor and felony assault, battery, aggravated assault, and aggravated battery. The penalties vary depending on the nature of the crime, but often include significant time in prison.
