You may not be an aggressive person,
but if you’ve been charged with assault,
this is a good time to start.
If you have been charged with assault, chances are good that the evidence is not clear. At the Zukerman Law Firm, we have found that any assault case requires our own careful investigation into the incident. We can often expose gaps and/or inconsistencies in the government’s evidence, find witnesses who support your version, and capture photos of the crime scene.
We work with forensic experts and independent investigators to support theories such as mistaken identity or diminished capacity.
If it looks like you indeed committed a crime, we will strive to find mitigating evidence to help us negotiate a settlement with the prosecutor that will allow you to plead guilty to a lesser charge, or even to have your case dismissed.
In addition, it’s to your advantage that the Zukerman firm has a strong working knowledge of the local court system, the judges, and the prosecutors. If your case goes to trial we will passionately defend you, protect your rights, and challenge the prosecution’s case whenever necessary.
But to be able to reduce or eliminate the most serious charges against you well before a trial, it’s important that we get to work as soon as possible. Any assault charge is a serious threat to your freedom and way of life – fortunately, you’ve found a law firm that can build your strongest defense. That’s a positive sign as you begin this very important fight.
