How our law firm can help you
Evidence matters. That’s important to remember when you’ve been charged with aggravated assault. The prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt all elements of this crime were intended. This is an extremely hard burden of prove. Any doubt in a judge’s mind could result in your charges being reduced or dismissed altogether.
We keep this in mind throughout your case. It’s what drives us to aggressively research the charges against you. This starts with our very first conversation with you. We want to hear in your own words exactly what happened. Then we often compare what you told us to the police officer’s arrest report. Are there any inconsistencies? What stands out?
That’s just the beginning. What about your rights? Did the arresting officer explain them to you? Or were your civil rights violated? What about the person who claims to be the victim? Did they assault you? Or have a history of violence? We leave no stone unturned in pursuit of justice.
