Fights, whether verbal or physical, can happen anywhere and between anyone. Whether it’s a bar fight, an argument between family members or domestic abuse, if an individual presses charges against you, you will be facing serious consequences.
Assault and battery are two very different crimes. Assault pertains to threatening an individual while battery involves actual physical contact. Sometimes, an assault will lead to battery. If convicted of either you could face a lengthy jail sentence and hefty fines and anger management classes.
It is essential to the outcome of your criminal defense case that you retain a knowledgeable attorney who will vigorously defend your rights in court.
As your attorney, it is my job to understand the impacts of an assault, battery or domestic abuse charge. In addition to fines and jail time, you could lose access to your children, lose your job and sever many other important relationships in the meantime. You may already feel anxious and alone. It’s imperative to hire a lawyer if you’ve been charged with domestic abuse batter because it can never be expunged. I am determined to serve as your advocate and guide as I pursue the best outcome possible for you or your loved one.
Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony, it is crucial that you retain a lawyer as soon as possible, who can begin investigating the details surrounding your arrest, including interviewing the alleged victim and other witnesses. With the right defense, I am often able to have the charges dismissed or the charges reduced.
