Focused, Strategic Defense Against Assault Charges
Getting to the truth about who initiated a bar fight or took a domestic dispute to a physical level is always difficult. Depending on the specifics of what happened, misdemeanor- or felony-level assault charges could be filed against you. The consequences that come with a conviction could be devastating.
If you are accused of causing serious injury or using a weapon in an assault, jail time is a clear possibility and pleading to a misdemeanor is not. Any conviction for violent crime on your record will be a serious barrier to overcome. The prosecution may be especially intent on securing a conviction and harsh penalties in a domestic violence case.
