What begins as an innocent night out with friends can easily turn into a ticket or even an arrest. A municipal or state charge of assault or battery can destroy a once-clean reputation and establish a permanent criminal record. Furthermore, if serious injuries result prosecutors will seek equally serious consequences– sometimes even time in jail or state prison. Assault cases often hinge on the skilled cross-examination of a witness in the courtroom, or an equally-skilled negotiation in private with the prosecuting attorney.
