Charged With Assault? I Can Help.
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 of 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. I handle the following types of assault cases:
I will conduct a thorough investigation to determine what really took place, review police reports and talk to all witnesses. While I will certainly consider plea negotiations if that is in your interests, I will not hesitate to take your case to trial if that is the best way to protect your rights and your freedom.
