It doesn’t take much to be charged with assault. However, prosecutors take these charges seriously. Assault charges are more likely than other cases to result in jail time, and a conviction tags you with the label of a violent offender.
When it comes to criminal defense of serious misdemeanor and felony assault charges, our lead trial attorney, Steven K. Burton, is your greatest ally. Even before you hire him, he can tell you how serious your charge is and what to expect from the prosecutor and judge as he specializes in assault and violent crime cases.
We Know How Prosecutors Prepare Their Cases
As a former prosecutor, Steve has handled thousands of criminal cases and has won more than 100 criminal trials. He knows the standard of evidence that must be presented to prove the prosecution’s case. Steve thoroughly investigates the circumstances surrounding your arrest and digs beneath the surface of the charges.
Your strongest case for having the charges dismissed or reduced is often determined by criminal intent. Simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time or getting caught up in the circumstances of the moment doesn’t mean you are a violent criminal. We will do everything possible to help you avoid a conviction and stay out of jail.
