Experienced Florida Assault and Battery Defense Law Firm

PRESENTING A STRONG DEFENSE AGAINST VIOLENT CRIME CHARGES

A defendant charged with assault or battery may be facing prison time. You need an attorney who is determined and serious about fighting for you, and who has the experience and knowledge to succeed. Gonzalez & Henley, P.A. defends individuals in the criminal justice system and our law firm are true advocates for the rights of defendants charged with violent crimes.

WHAT IS ASSAULT AND BATTERY?

Generally, assault is the threat of violence and battery is any violent or unwanted touching. These charges vary by state and the names of the two crimes are often used interchangeably. In some states, they are not considered separate offenses. Actions such as hitting, kicking, punching or pushing are considered to be assaults. Many other actions, such as grabbing or spitting, can also lead to these charges. Our law firm fights all types of violent crime charges.

WHAT ARE SOME TYPES OF ASSAULTS?

Assaults occur for a variety of reasons. Many assault or battery charges stem from simple fights. In these cases, our attorneys work to show that you were acting in self-defense and are not a violent criminal. Other assaults are gang-related or occur in conjunction with other crimes, such as robbery. Assaults of a sexual nature are treated differently by the law. In all cases, our law firm presents a strong defense in an attempt to preserve your freedom.

REDUCING AN ASSAULT CHARGE

Most states have a variety of assault charges, such as aggravated assault or assault in the first degree. Depending on the facts of your case, the state may choose to charge you with a higher-level crime than is necessary. Our law firm works to get your charges reduced through a variety of pretrial motions. We also fight to get our clients the most lenient sentence possible under the circumstances.
