Assault & Battery Defense

Tallahassee Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been charged with assault and battery in Tallahassee, the attorneys at Jansen & Davis, P.A., will exhaust all of their efforts and resources to establish a defense strategy, win your case, and keep you out of prison.

Understanding the Allegation & What's at Stake

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 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.

Possible Defense Strategies

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 & 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.

Our attorneys are renowned in the State of Florida both as former prosecutors and as defense attorneys. We know what it takes to win your case and want to hear your story. Call our offices today at (877) 378-6136.
