The last thing that you want to have on your record is an offense involving violence. Battery and, or assault criminal offenses are considered offenses involving violence. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I can certainly help you out with representation involving assault and battery criminal offenses. In a Battery and, or assault criminal case I will be investigating the case myself, interviewing witnesses, and when possible, finding witnesses that were present during the alleged altercation, to show the prosecutor that their case against you is weak.

There are alternative ways of handling assault and battery criminal cases so that you are not adjudicated, and you do not have to go to trial regarding the case. However, if a trial is unavoidable, I will personally prepare the case for your defense to present a trial on your behalf. There are alternative means of handling a case prior to trial which can help you out more than risking going to trial.

The difference between an assault or battery crime is that in an assault the accused allegedly in an imminent threat of harm. The legal nuances of that are that the threat must be imminent and not over a phone. A battery crime involves the intentional unwanted touching of any kind. A misconception in battery cases is that many people think it must involve striking. A battery actually involves an intentional and unwanted touching of any kind. According to law, even the touching of someone’s hand may be considered battery if it is intentional.
