Defense matters in assault cases
Assault charges can lead to very serious penalties for those who are found guilty. There is one point that anyone facing these charges must remember — each person has the right to present a defense against the charges. Your defense is something that you must take very seriously.
We understand that you might be concerned about how your case is going to end. We can’t offer you any guarantees about that, but we can fight for you. One of the first things that you have to determine is how you are willing to resolve the case. You can try to pursue a plea deal or you can go to trial. No matter which of these options you want, it is imperative that we prepare your case for trial just in case no suitable plea deal is reached.
When we prepare your case for trial, we look into the case against you to see what options we have. Our goal is to introduce doubt into the case against you so that you can’t be found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
You must understand that you are at the center of your defense. We work with you and value your opinion about the options you have. We will work to make sure that you are aware of your options and that you understand how these options might impact your life so that you can make informed decisions about every aspect of your case.
Even if the prosecution has a strong case against you, there are still defense options. We can work to minimize the penalties you will endure if you acknowledge your part in the assault at the heart of the case.
