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.

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.
