How Can A Lawyer Help With Your Assault & Battery Charges?

We may be able to get charges reduced by explaining the circumstances of your incident, especially if you have no criminal history or acted in self-defense. In the case of felony assault, we will investigate the incident in addition to reviewing evidence and talking to witnesses.

  • Fights at bars, nightclubs or concerts
  • Street fights
  • Domestic violence
