Your Future Is On the Line – Calling Our Law Firm is the First Step Towards Protecting It
When you have been charged with assault or aggravated assault, what will happen next is anyone’s guess. If you are convicted of the charges, you could face either misdemeanor (class A, B, or C) or felony (first degree, second degree, or third degree) charges depending upon the severity of the assault. While a misdemeanor class C assault charge may only be penalized by a fine of $500, the repercussions it may have on your ability to secure employment, and your reputation, can be serious. If you are charged with a first degree felony, you could face charges of up to life in prison, as well as a large fine.
When you contact a criminal defense attorney, you are doing the smart thing. A criminal defense attorney will not only help you to understand the charges that you are facing and how to navigate the court system, but will work tirelessly on your behalf to craft a strong defense and secure the best outcome possible.
