Confrontations are quickly escalated by alcohol or adrenaline, leading to poor decisions or unintended results. Sometimes, police arrest the wrong party or both parties. Prosecutors commonly overcharge these cases, creating the real possibility of prison time and a felony record.
We thoroughly examine the facts, with the goal of dismissing the case, downgrading the charges, excluding evidence or negotiating lesser penalties. Our attorneys can skillfully argue self-defense, provocation and other defenses or challenge the statements of the victim and witnesses to cast doubt on the charges. We are prepared to defend you at trial if necessary to avoid the lifelong consequences of a conviction.
