Fighting the Consequences of Charges for Assault on a Female
If you are arrested for assault on a female, you will be held for up to 48 hours before having a chance to see a judge and argue your case. During that time, you are not supposed to see the alleged victim and you may even be separated from your children. When you finally get to court, there is an aggressive team of prosecutors and the witness is the same person who called the police on you. This is not a fair trial.
Let us level the playing field.
We know that alleged victims often change their stories, and we know how to use this to our client's advantage. We will fight to have your charges dismissed or, if that is not possible, your penalties reduced. We will negotiate with the prosecution and try to convince them to act fairly, no matter what charges you face.
