Understanding Harassment, Assault, and Battery Charges
You may not be familiar with the legal terms used to define violent crimes. Criminal harassment refers to intentional behavior that is intended to scare, torment or terrorize another person, constituting a credible threat to their security and safety or that of their family. Assault is when an intentional attempt is made to injure or harm someone through the use of force or violence. If the attempt succeeds and illegal contact is made, this is defined as battery.
You may be facing more than one of these charges at once. We will work with you to understand the circumstances of your arrest, help you to understand the allegations made against you and prepare a solid defense strategy to give you the best chance at a positive outcome.
We Can Help You To Resolve Complex Domestic Violence Charges
Domestic violence charges can encompass more than just physical abuse, including sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and even financial abuse. These matters are often legally complex and emotionally charged. Often, prosecutors will push for more severe sentences when the parties involved are closely related due to the perceived likelihood of a repeat offense.
We understand the intricacies involved in domestic violence cases, and we will fight hard to ensure that your rights and your reputation are protected from false accusations and malicious allegations.
