While a simple assault and battery is classified as a misdemeanor, it can still carry jail time, an expensive fine and leave you with a criminal record. When aggravating factors are involved, such as when there is significant bodily injury or when the victim is a law enforcement officer, the prosecution may bring felony charges that could result in a lengthy and sometimes, mandatory prison sentence.

We work closely with every client, crafting strategic defense plans that fit their needs and serve their best interests.
