Assault and battery charges can range from misdemeanor charges to charges that carry the potential of a life sentence in prison. These charges often result from situations where the police report may not tell the full story. These charges require a detailed examination of what defenses are available since there is often far more to the story than what is written in a police report. If an individual faces these charges, it is important to hire an attorney that is ready to examine every possible defense and has the legal knowledge to get the best possible result. We have that knowledge and experience that comes with handling these types of cases through trial.
