Experienced North Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney
We have defended clients in cases involving simple assault and aggravated assault, in every possible scenario: arguing spouses, jealous boyfriends, student rivalries, drunken brawls and other altercations that turned physical.
With over 25 years of practice, we can tell you that an assault charge should never be taken lightly. Aggravated assault (serious bodily injury, use of a weapon, or vehicular assault) is a serious crime with the very real possibility of prison.
We do not simply encourage you to plead guilty. Our goal is to convince the prosecutor or the court to dismiss the case, or to at least avoid incarceration. Every case has a unique set of circumstances that will determine our approach. We explore all defenses and mitigating factors, such as self-defense or aid of another, mutual combat, provocation, and conflicting statements of witnesses or the victim.
If you decide to plead guilty or are found guilty and have no violent prior offenses, we will argue for non-custodial probation which may include anger management counseling instead of a jail term. If you are facing incarceration in either county jail or state prison, and the state has chosen not to negotiate an acceptable plea bargain, then we are prepared to take your case to a trial and a jury.
Contact us today to discuss your assault charge. With our office in Parsippany, we take cases throughout Morris County and North Jersey. We can also visit clients in jail.
