Assault & Battery Defense
Tallahassee Criminal Defense Lawyer
If you have been charged with assault and battery in Tallahassee, an attorney
from Jansen and Davis, P.A., will work hard to win your case and keep
you out of jail.
Assault and battery are typically considered to be felony offenses. Any
incident requiring medical treatment from physical violence is considered
to be a serious violent offense. Simple assault, which applies when only
minor injuries result without the aid of a weapon, is a lesser charge
that may only be considered a misdemeanor. It is important to remember
that more often than not, assault and battery charges are felony offenses
that carry severe and long-term consequences.
Tallahassee law enforcement and prosecutors take assault & battery
offenses very seriously and readily prosecute possible offenders to the
fullest extent of the law. The criminal defense attorneys at our law firm
have the experience necessary to effectively represent clients in the
ever-changing Florida legal system.
Sometimes individuals who are simply defending themselves or another person
may end up being charged with assault and battery. Unfortunately, law
enforcement often will arrest any person who inflicts visible evidence
of physical violence or aggression. Depending upon the circumstances and
evidence against you, your attorney from Jansen and Davis, P.A. may be
able to get the charges reduced or dropped, will negotiate for a diversion
program, or will try to get you probation instead of jail time. When handling
cases involving assault and battery charges, we strive to provide the
highest standard of legal representation possible.
