Assault and Battery
Assault and battery cases can also be very serious, as most of them can be charged as felonies or misdemeanors. When weapons are involved, the seriousness of the case escalates and you may be facing felony “strike” charges. Witness interviews and additional investigation, including obtaining surveillance tapes, photographing injuries and obtaining witness information may be necessary and time will be of the essence before such evidence is no longer available. Always consult an attorney in assault and battery cases who can assist in your defense.
