We Help People Charged with Aggravated Assault in N.Y.
It is not uncommon for a charge that should be classified as a simple assault (if at all) to be escalated to an aggravated assault charge. Our defense attorneys have worked with many clients who have been charged with aggravated assault after a physical altercation with a police officer that may have begun with a questionable stop and search. It is important to have experienced legal representation to defend against these types of charges and protect your rights. Our team will work diligently to advocate on your behalf and seek the best possible outcome in your case.
As your attorneys, the Law Offices of Patrick Parrotta will protect your rights, particularly your right to a robust defense against the charges you face, which includes doing everything allowed by law to obtain the most positive results for you.
If you have been arrested and are being held in custody on an aggravated assault charge, our first priority will be to work towards securing your release.
There are several defenses that may be used to defend against an aggravated assault charge. These include demonstrating that the incident was a consensual fight or that the action was taken in self-defense or the defense of another person, such as a spouse, family member, friend, or even a stranger.
While it may be possible to justify causing harm to another person in certain circumstances, such as self-defense or the defense of another, it is never acceptable to continue to inflict punishment on an individual who is defenseless or has submitted. It is important to stop before causing significant or serious bodily harm.
We will investigate the facts of your arrest and the case against you. We may find evidence to support a defense based on:
Mistaken identity, such as because of a faulty suspect lineup
False or unreliable witness testimony
Faulty or fabricated evidence
Racial, ethnic, socio-economic, or other bias
Police and/or prosecutorial misconduct, such as illegal arrest and/or search and seizure.
We can sometimes get charges reduced or dismissed based on our client’s remorse, willingness to pay restitution, such as for medical bills, time out of work, etc. and such circumstances as:
Because our attorneys have relationships with prosecutors across the state, we can reach out and begin fruitful negotiations right away toward having charges dismissed or reduced as part of a plea bargain.
Inability to understand the consequences of the individual’s actions
Because our attorneys have relationships with prosecutors across the state, we can reach out and begin fruitful negotiations right away toward having charges dismissed or reduced as part of a plea bargain.
An act resulting from the heat of passion, stress, duress, etc.
Lack of intent to inflict significant or serious harm
Being incapable of intent due to impairment
If a trial is necessary in your case, our entire legal team will be available to help you prepare a strong and persuasive case to present to the judge and jury. If a conviction cannot be avoided, our attorneys have established professional relationships with prosecutors across the state that can be helpful in advocating for a minimum sentence and alternatives to jail time.
Keep in mind that an arrest in New Jersey starts a long process that does not necessarily end in a guilty verdict. There is reason to be optimistic if you have an experienced and dedicated aggravated assault defense attorney from the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall on your case.
