Seeking the Best Angle to Defend Your Rights
We will take immediate action to understand your view of the events. We will determine the inception of the fight, identify and interview witnesses, review police version of events, prepare aggressive cross-examination of witnesses, and present facts in self-defense or mitigate your conduct and penalties against you. Our investigative approach has proven to be invaluable when defending clients accused of serious offenses such as:
- Domestic violence
- Individual altercations
- Bar fights
- Aggravated assault
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Drug- and alcohol-induced assaults and fights
Usually, the outcome of assault charges is dependent upon the particular, specific facts of the case. Assault charges often stem from an emotional dispute or altercation. If you have been charged with a crime of alleged violence or assault, we will determine the evidence against you, develop your case to confront both the accuser and the state’s evidence, and will explore your best possible defenses, including self-defense.
