Assault and Battery Criminal Defense Attorney

Are you facing assault or battery charges?

Assault or battery are separate crimes that are frequently charged together. Assault refers to the threat or attempt at using force to cause harm to another, and battery refers to the violence itself. If you or someone you love faces assault or battery charges, please contact us as soon as possible. We are on your side in and out of the courtroom. We can develop a legal defense strategy likely to result in a verdict in your favor.

A conviction of assault or battery likely brings severe fines, prison time, other penalties, a probation period and restitution. Defending these charges sometimes calls attention to the fact that physical contact was either defensive or unintentional. Other times it might be argued that the alleged incident was in fact only a malicious accusation and never happened at all. Depending on the circumstances, each case should have a unique strategy. We will give your case careful attention. Contact us today.
