Most people do not start their day planning to be attacked and forced to defend themselves or for an argument to escalate into a physical fight. However, for many people that will be exactly what happens to them on a given day, and some will find themselves in handcuffs. The consequences for being convicted of an assault or related offense can range from incurring expensive criminal fines and restitution orders to being sentenced to years in prison. You can loose licenses and certificates, the right to vote, the right to carry firearms, etc. It all depends on the circumstances, and the circumstances are seldom thoroughly investigated. Your very livelihood will likely come down to whether your attorney has the experience necessary to thoroughly investigate and defend an assault case.
If you’ve been charged with an assault or similar offense, don’t hire just anyone. Hire an attorney who has investigated, prosecuted, and defended hundreds of assault cases. Hire an attorney who holds a Master Peace Officer Certificate, a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice, and two decades of law enforcement and criminal law experience. Our legal team is comprised of respectful, dedicated attorneys who will work tirelessly to defend your legal rights. Don’t trust your very freedom to simply anyone.
