Rigorous Criminal Defense To Assault Charges
If you are accused of a violent crime in South Jersey, there is no time to lose in retaining an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights — and future. A conviction for a violent offense may carry significant consequences, both inside and outside of the criminal justice system. An assault conviction can have an adverse impact on future educational, employment and housing opportunities long after the criminal case is closed.
Diligent Criminal Defense Representation For Violent Crimes
In New Jersey, you can face charges for assault without ever making physical contact with the alleged victim. If police believe that you threatened or attempted to put the alleged victim in fear of imminent injury, you may face a charge for simple assault. Causing or attempting to cause bodily injury to another may bring criminal charges. The degree and severity of injury in the alleged incident may increase an offense to an aggravated assault charge. Typically, the threat or evidence of significant bodily injury will raise the stakes in a New Jersey assault charge.
