Attorneys for Assault and Battery Cases in Lee County
Criminal Defense Lawyers Fighting Domestic Violence Charges In Fort Myers
Assault and battery are particularly serious criminal offenses because they may be classified as violent felony offenses and therefore may count as a “strike” on a defendant’s criminal record. Receive a second strike and you will face double the penalties for that offense. Receive a third strike and you may face up to a lifetime in prison.
The criminal defense attorneys at Finebloom & Haenel are experienced in defending clients who are facing assault and battery charges. While these can be grouped together in a criminal case, they may also be charged separately. Our attorneys are familiar with representing all forms of both assault and battery, including simple assault, simple battery, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, and assault with a deadly weapon. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your particular charges and see what we can do to help.
Contact an Attorney about Your Fort Myers Assault & Battery Charges
It is important that you do not wait to contact a criminal defense attorney about your assault and battery charges. The earlier an attorney can get involved, the better chance he or she has of securing a better case result. An attorney may even be able to help you avoid having formal charges filed at all, or can help ensure that the charges that are filed are not as serious as they may have been otherwise.
Contact our firm and let one of our experienced lawyers review your assault and battery charges to determine what specific approach will be best to effectively protect your rights and interests. If you do not take action and secure the criminal defense representation you need, you may find that you are facing felony charges and long-term imprisonment if you are convicted.
