Knowledgeable counselors explain assault and battery

Generally, assault is the threat of violence, and battery is any violent or unwanted touching. These charges vary by state, and the names of the two crimes are often used interchangeably. In some states, they are not considered separate offenses. Actions such as hitting, kicking, punching or pushing are considered to be assaults. Many other actions such as grabbing or spitting can also lead to these charges. Our attorneys present a formidable defense to all types of assault and battery charges.

Proven advocates handle a range of assault cases

Assaults occur for a variety of reasons. Many assault or battery charges stem from simple fights. In these cases, our attorneys work to show that you were acting in self-defense and are not a violent criminal. Other assaults are gang-related or occur in conjunction with other crimes such as robbery. Assaults of a sexual nature are treated differently by the law. In all cases, our attorneys decisively defend your freedom.

Skilled defense lawyers work to reduce assault charges

Most states have a variety of assault charges such as aggravated assault or assault in the first degree. Depending on the facts of your case, the state may choose to charge you with a higher-level crime than is necessary. Our attorneys work to get your charges reduced through a variety of pretrial motions. We also fight to get our clients the most lenient sentence possible under the circumstances.

    Michele Carney was my attorney back to 90s. She did not charge me and worked on my immigration case for free. She is the best attorney I could wish, also she is a wonderful person. I am so grateful that I am living in US.
