No one wants to believe that a small misunderstanding that ends in a drunken shoving match justifies assault charges, or that a heated argument at home can result in allegations of domestic violence. Regardless of how you see it, the law takes a very harsh view toward these types of scenarios. In fact, the consequences of assault charges are frequently beyond what most people expect.
Assault charges can lead to hefty fines, prison sentences, restraining orders, damaged reputations and even more serious charges if a gun is involved. We handle the following types of assault cases:
We conduct thorough investigations to determine what really took place, review police reports and talk to all witnesses. While we will certainly consider plea negotiations if that is in your interests, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial if that is the best way to protect your rights and your freedom.
Justified or not, being charged with assault is a serious matter you should not take lightly. To schedule an appointment with a dedicated criminal defense lawyer, call our Albany, Schenectady or New York City law office at 866-642-3807 or email him directly.
