Assault & Battery Charges in Minnesota

Don't Make the Mistake of Thinking That It's "No Big Deal"

Having an assault charge on your record can be very damaging to your record as well as your day-to-day life. It's critical to work with an experienced attorney who can help ensure the best possible outcome to minimize the effect the charge has on you.

Make sure your side of the story is told.

The great majority of assault charges are written up by police officers who were NOT at the scene when the confrontation was happening. They try to piece together what happened by interviewing people who may have seen or heard something. Often alcohol is involved, making matters even more confusing. In cases where physical force was used for self-defense, showing up after the fact can be very misleading. You may have been well within your legal right to defend yourself, but when the cops show up, if you are not hurt, and the other person is, there is a good chance you are going to be the one charged with a crime.

Being tagged as a "Violent Offender"

One of the reasons it is so important to fight your assault charges is to keep your criminal record clean, especially of charges that can be construed as "violent". You can see how to a potential employer, or landlord that being seen as someone who solves problems with their fists first can be a real liability. Limited housing options and limited employment options can be a much higher cost than being on probation or paying a fine.

If you have been charged with assault, call for help today.

I provide a free initial consultation to anyone charged with a crime, either over the phone, email, or in my office. Don't waste another day worrying and wondering about how to move forward. In cases where your defense relies on witness interviews or reconstructing the situation sooner is better to ensure accuracy. After a free consultation, you will have a better understanding of both the charges against you and how to move forward. I provide a clear idea of how much it will cost to defend you and accept all major credit cards.
