Defending against Assault & Battery Charges

The most common defense strategy used to combat assault charges is self-defense.

To claim self-defense, you must be able to prove:

  • There was a threat of harm
  • You had a genuine fear of harm
  • You did not provoke or harm anyone first
  • There was no way to avoid the situation

Other common assault defenses include:

  • Duress
  • Entrapment
  • Unintentional attack
  • Lack of offense
  • Lack of injury suffered
  • Involuntary intoxication
  • Insanity

Regardless of your situation, our skilled criminal defense lawyers can attentively listen to your side of the story, determine the most effective defense strategy, and strive to have your charges reduced, dismissed, or dropped altogether.
