Domestic Violence

If you have been charged with domestic violence, including assault of a family member, you may be facing significant penalties and possibly a protective order that prevents you from contacting your family. It is important when faced with allegations of domestic violence to work with an honest, objective criminal defense lawyer who can clearly explain your rights. Because allegations of domestic abuse are emotional for everyone involved, it is important you have a knowledgeable lawyer on your side who can ensure that your rights are protected and you are aware of your legal options.

Misdemeanor Assault And Battery (Second-Degree Assault)

You do not have to throw a punch, injure someone or be in a fight to be charged with assault. Making "offensive physical contact" with someone, regardless of force, can lead to criminal charges. You can also be charged with assault for attempting to make offensive physical contact or intentionally frightening someone with the threat of imminent physical violence.

Assault and battery, however it arises, is a serious charge. While second-degree assault is technically a misdemeanor, it carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison.
