Assault & Interpersonal Charges

It’s a fact that most altercations never result in an assault charge.  The parties involved may go their separate ways, resolve their differences on their own, or otherwise avoid involving the law.  However, when police and prosecutors become involved with an assault charge or some other crime against another person, the defendant can face months or years in prison, a criminal record that will follow him or her, along with court costs and fines.  A finding of guilt may also pave the way for a costly civil case against the defendant.  

With all this at stake, it’s important to work with a zealous and fearless criminal defense attorney who will put your strongest defense forward, negotiate with prosecutors, and defend your freedom and future.  Having a combined experience level of nearly 30 years as prosecutors operating as criminal justice system insiders, Meridith and Sam have the experience and skills to fight the charges against you and work towards the best possible outcome for your case.

  • Assault

  • Menacing
  • Wanton Endangerment
  • Criminal Abuse

Never Try to Fight Assault or Other Interpersonal Criminal Charges on Your Own 

Assault and other interpersonal charges can be very difficult to prove because they often come down to questions of eyewitness testimony regarding who started an altercation, whether the defendant took the alleged action at all, and, if so, whether the defendant was justified in taking the action (e.g., self-defense).  

Because of this, police may try to discourage you from speaking with a lawyer in the hopes you will tell them something damaging against yourself and make their case for them.  They may suggest that by doing so, you might escape liability on the charge or that they might “go easy on you” or “put in a good word” for you.  

The fact of the matter is that you have a constitutional right against self-incrimination and to have a lawyer present during all police questioning on your assault charge, and you NEVER want to give those rights up without speaking to your own lawyer.  Meridith and Sam will zealously and fearlessly defend you from illegal and overreaching police investigation tactics from the very start, and force police to play be the rules in bringing any assault or other interpersonal charge against you.  

Putting Your Best Defense Forward in Your Assault or Other Interpersonal Criminal Charge 

Prosecutors must prove all elements of an assault or interpersonal criminal charge beyond a reasonable doubt before a jury may convict you.  This is a very high bar to meet and Meridith and Sam will present your best arguments for why the prosecutors have failed to do this.  As former prosecutors with a combined experience level of nearly 30 years as criminal justice system insiders, Meridith and Sam have personally brought and successfully prosecuted assault and other interpersonal charges and have the experience and skills to find the weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case.  

Whether through winning a not guilty verdict or reduced sentence, negotiating a favorable plea agreement or working to end a criminal investigation, Meridith and Sam have the experience and skills you want in a criminal defense attorney and they will put their skills and experience to work for you in zealously and fearlessly fighting the assault or other interpersonal charges against you.
