Potential Serious Lifetime Consequences

Being convicted of assault, battery, aggravated assault or aggravated battery will negatively impact your life forever. You may be disqualified from employment in children, elder, daycare, education, law enforcement and health care related fields.

Promptly retaining me to pursue every viable criminal defense on your behalf is crucial. Fact finding and witness location immediately post arrest is important. Often a well worded letter drafted by me, enclosing sworn witness statements will convince the prosecutor to “drop” your criminal prosecution.
