Defense Strategies in Assault Cases

As in all criminal defense cases, it is important that you remember your right to remain silent if you have been accused of assault. We encourage you to talk to us before you talk to police. We will listen to your story and move forward, building a strong defense strategy.

Many people charged with assault were simply defending themselves from harm. While police may not have listened when you told them you were defending yourself, we will. We will utilize the self-defense strategy to protect you from the repercussions of an assault conviction.

We may also need to conduct an investigation that involves reviewing the other party's background. Does the person have a history of fighting? Has he or she been charged with assault before? Are there other extenuating circumstances that need to be considered? We will gather all the information necessary to create a strong defense strategy to help you and work to successfully fight the charges.
