Assault Defense Lawyers • Former Prosecutors
Assault charges can be filed if there is a threat of imminent violence — no contact is necessary for charges to be filed. Battery charges are filed when physical contact was allegedly made with the victim. At our criminal defense law firm, we understand there are many factors involved in an assault, battery, or domestic violence charge.
Our first objective at the Moses and Rooth law firm is to assure your rights are protected from the time you are arrested until the matter is fully resolved by a dismissal of charges, a plea, or a criminal court trial.
- Arrest: Bar fights, road rage, workplace violence, or a simple misunderstanding can lead to assault and battery charges. Your first concerns should be getting a lawyer and posting bond. You do not have an obligation to say anything to the police. Contact a defense lawyer at Moses and Rooth.
- Case Analysis: Your Moses and Rooth defense attorney will listen to your story, examine the evidence, interview witnesses, and explain the law and your options. From the time you retain our services, we will handle the legal matter and keep you informed and advised.
- Aggravated Assault: If the assault charges involved a gun or any other weapon, the charges could be elevated to aggravated assault. The presence of a weapon, such as a gun or knife, could mean a longer sentence. Battery assault on a law enforcement officer could also result in enhanced charges.
- Mitigating Circumstances: Are there circumstances that could lead to more lenient sentencing or an alternative sentence? As a former prosecutor, your criminal defense lawyer knows the criminal justice system, the laws, and the options available. Examples include anger management classes, therapy, drug or alcohol rehabilitation, or home confinement.
