Assault and Battery Defense.........................
Boston Criminal Defense Attorneys: Also Serving Gloucester, Salem, and North Shore Courts
In order for the state to prove assault and battery, the state must prove that the defendant touched the victim, intended to touch the victim and either injured the victim or touched the victim without consent. Invariably, these types of cases revolve around two very distinct sides of the story. Thus, a skilled Massachusetts lawyer is an absolute necessity if you find yourself charged with Assault and Battery.
The Commonwealth, the prosecution, has the ultimate burden of proving all the elements of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt; this is a very strict standard, and a difficult threshold to meet, especially in cases where conflicting testimony exists. Thus, a Massachusetts criminal defense attorney is vital to ensuring your rights remain protected.
If the defendant is convicted of assault and battery, the defendant can face up to two and one half years in jail. Criminal charges are serious matters.
Our attorneys are prepared to represent clients charged with alleged criminal acts and explain the process, including:
Our lawyers investigate the facts and circumstances of the alleged assault and battery, whether domestic or not, and attempt to determine the most prudent course of action. Our criminal defense attorneys are prepared to serve as a zealous advocate, aggressively protecting the rights of the accused. We live in a nation that holds in high esteem the unalienable rights of the accused. If you have been charged with a crime, you are not a criminal, but an accused.
