In all assault and battery cases, the court will consider if reasonable force was used, even in cases of self-defense. If the victim was battered beyond what the court considers reasonable given the circumstances, the accused will likely be found guilty. Our lawyers will demonstrate that you used the level of force needed to counter the situation you were facing, protecting yourself and others.
In cases involving family members, spouses or those who live together, domestic violence becomes an issue. These situations can be difficult to sort through as there are often underlying family law and other legal issues that will be impacted, and the alleged victim may be using the case to win in those matters. We will evaluate all factors that may play a role in the case at hand, including them in your defense.
