What can seem like an innocent night out with friends can easily turn into a ticket—or even an arrest. A municipal or state charge of assault or battery can destroy a once clean reputation and criminal record. Further, if serious injuries result, prosecutors can and will seek equally serious consequences, sometimes even time in jail or state prison. Assault cases often hinge on skilled cross-examination of a witness in the courtroom or equally skilled negotiation with the prosecutor.
