Assault & Battery
While many battery charges are simple in nature (stemming from a bar fight or other altercation), more serious charges can be complex and carry stiff penalties, particularly a domestic violence charge. There are long-term federal and state consequences resulting from a conviction. If you or a family member have been charged with battery, it’s important to speak with an experienced defense attorney who can assess your case and determine your best options and defense strategies.
At the Law Office of Diana James, we take a highly personalized approach to your case. We conduct an in-depth analysis of the events leading up to, during and immediately following your arrest. By carefully examining the evidence against you, we work to identify information that can be used to pressure the prosecution into reducing or dismissing your charges.
Some of the more common A&B charges are:
- Domestic Violence
- Simple Assault
- Simple Battery
- Assault with a Deadly Weapon
- Battery with Serious Bodily Injury
- Battery on a Peace Officer
While battery charges relate to the bodily harm of another individual, assault charges often accompany a battery charge, which increases the minimum sentence. If you have been charged with assault or battery, it is important to start developing your defense immediately. Contact us for a free case evaluation.
