We Provide Aggressive Assault Defenses
When you have been charged with assault or battery, you need a solid criminal defense from an experienced, knowledgeable attorney to protect your rights. If you have been charged with assault in relation to a traffic violation, it is important that you work with a lawyer who is experienced at handling traffic violations as well as criminal charges. The Law Office of Karl A. Mueller, PLC, is dedicated to defending clients accused of traffic crimes and related criminal charges. We will aggressively defend your rights.
How Is Assault Defined?
Assault is defined as the reckless or intentional injury of another person and is different from aggravated assault charges, which involves the reckless or intentional use of a weapon or dangerous instrument to injure another. However, assault is still a serious charge involving jail time, a large fine, possible loss of your license and a criminal record that will follow you the rest of your life.
Whether you are guilty of assault is determined by a jury, rather than by legal statute. We will use our experience to effectively persuade the jury that the prosecution has not met the legal standard for recklessness. Sometimes an accident is just an accident, and sometimes actions are construed inaccurately and unfairly – simple assault versus self-defense depends on the specific circumstances of your arrest. For you, this is the difference between conviction and dismissal. In this way, our aggressive and knowledgeable defense could make the ultimate difference in your future.
