Any criminal charge involving assault or other violent crimes can profoundly impact your future. Even if you are charged with misdemeanor assault, you could face jail and fines. Felony charges are even more severe. But even if you are able to avoid incarceration, you will have the stigma of a criminal conviction for a violent offense. In addition to the embarrassment and harm to your reputation, your conviction may make it difficult to find a job in the future. If you have been charged with a violent crime, you need to take action to protect yourself and contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
We Handle All Types of Assault & Violent Crimes Cases
There are many different criminal charges that prosecutors can bring in a case involving an assault or other violent crime.

Whether you have been charged with a single offense or are facing multiple charges, you will need a criminal defense lawyer to get a fair outcome.

When appropriate, they can get baseless charges dismissed or get the prosecution to reduce your charges.
