Assault and Battery
Have you been charged with assault and battery? Alejo Lugo will fight for you.
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be involved in a physical fight or even inflict a serious injury in order to find yourself charged with a crime. Assault charges can apply if someone alleges that you attempted to harm them, and battery charges can apply if someone alleges that you touched them without their consent, even if there was no major injury.
No matter what the circumstances surrounding your assault and/or battery charge may be, you need excellent representation to help you keep this violent crime off of your record if possible. If a guilty verdict is unavoidable, you need a skilled attorney to work to mitigate any sentencing you may receive.
At The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates, we have fifteen years of experience practicing criminal law and the expertise that comes with that experience. This expertise enables us to represent you effectively no matter which type of crime you are charged with:
- Simple assault
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Simple battery
- Battery causing serious injury
- Battery on a peace officer
- Domestic battery
Possible Assault and Battery Defenses
Often, assault charges can be difficult to prove and may be based on testimony from unreliable witnesses. As your defense attorneys, we will focus on gathering all of the evidence relevant to the charge against you and determining whether the prosecutor has enough to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
In addition to arguing that there is insufficient evidence to support a conviction, another common defense strategy is arguing that you acted in self-defense (or in defense of another person). If we can show that the victim bringing the charge against you was the aggressor, then you will be acquitted, and they may face assault charges instead.
We know the local judges and prosecutors well and will use this knowledge to help you know what to expect and to craft a defense strategy for your case.
