Defending You Against Charges Of Assault And Battery
At Fraser Law Office LLC, we know that there are individuals arrested for crimes who were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. This can be true in cases concerning assault and battery. Often, police responding to 911 calls feel that they have to make an arrest, even if there is uncertainty about what actually happened that gave rise to the 911 call.
In Massachusetts and New Hampshire, there are severe consequences for individuals convicted of a crime. In some cases, individuals convicted of assault and battery will be required to spend time in jail. When family violence is alleged, a conviction will bring more severe penalties, so you need to be sure that you understand what will happen if you plead guilty to assault and battery charges.
We Perform A Detailed Review Of Your Case
As part of our assault and battery defense, we conduct thorough interviews of our clients to determine what actually happened. We closely examine police reports from the officers at the scene, and we interview any available witnesses to the dispute. We then discuss the options available to you and how to best to defend your case. We help with different types of assault and battery cases, including:
- Charges concerning both misdemeanor and felony allegations
- Incidents related to family violence, including restraining order violations and harassment prevention order violations
- Situations involving self-defense or the defense of others
Our lawyers will make every effort to reach an agreement with prosecutors that is in your best interests. However, in some cases, this may not be possible. If we take your case to trial, we are thoroughly prepared.
