Building a Sound Defense for Your Assault 1 Case

As your defense attorney, my objective is to protect your rights and reputation. After establishing a thorough understanding of the details of your specific situation, I will advise you on the steps we must take to build the strongest defense for your unique case.

As with any case, my primary goal is to identify credible reasons to have the charges against you dismissed. Examples of this may be that you were acting in self-defense, defense of others or defense of your property. The next step is to engage in negotiations to avoid conviction and prevent or minimize the penalties you face. A strategic negotiation can often avoid or reduce sanctions such as fines, treatment requirements or jail time.
