A Results-Oriented Lawyer Working Tirelessly To Protect Your Rights
There is a large difference in the potential penalties for first-, second-, third- and fourth-degree assault. For instance, fourth-degree assault is a gross misdemeanor, but third-, second- and first-degree assault charges are felony charges. A felony conviction can obviously have devastating consequences. My first goal in every case is to find any possible, credible reason to have these charges dismissed. For instance, if there are facts to show you acted in self-defense, I will document these facts the best we can, and then persuasively bring this evidence to the prosecutor's attention. If it is not possible to have the charges dismissed through such negotiation, I will then attempt to negotiate a plea agreement that avoids more significant consequences, such as jail and conviction.
Preparing A Complete Defense To All Types Of Accusations
Assault charges are often brought together with other criminal accusations, such as harassment or malicious mischief. Additionally, many assault charges are domestic violence (DV) assault charges, and those are frequently filed with additional DV counts, such as malicious mischief DV, interference with the reporting of DV, and violation of an existing DV protection order or no-contact order, or DV threats to kill, DV harassment, DV telephone harassment, DV stalking, to name just some of the more common ones. If you are facing multiple charges for a single incident, I will work tirelessly to have the charges against you reduced or dropped. Whether you are facing assault, harassment, weapons charges or any other related offenses, I will take all the steps necessary to put you in the best possible position.
