Assault Charges Can Ruin Your Life

Any assault charges could lead to harsh penalties that hurt your future. A charge of first-degree assault, which is the most severe type, involves serious harm or an attempt to cause serious harm. The penalties could include large fines and up to 25 years in jail. Even charges of lesser degrees will carry heavy consequences, and a criminal mark on your record can greatly damage your life.

We Know How To Defend You

Despite the potential penalties, there are many defense strategies that can be employed to fight assault charges or reduce the consequences. Haskell & Zimmerman has extensive knowledge of these defenses and will work tirelessly to protect your rights.

One effective argument is self-defense. If we can show that your actions were meant to protect yourself or others, you cannot be charged with assault. Another example is suppression of evidence. If any evidence was gathered illegally or without following the correct procedures, it might be dismissed in court.
