Need Defense Against Assault Charges? Talk To Our Lawyer In Hastings.

An argument in a bar or some other type of heated situation can easily become a physical confrontation, which leads to assault charges. Once the police become involved in these types of situations, there can be a great degree of confusion. Too often, the story the police are able to gather may not be an accurate characterization of what happened. Given that alcohol and drugs are often a part of the situations that lead up to an assault, it is easy to see how witnesses may give conflicting stories, which makes the truth hard to discern.

Were You Forced To Defend Yourself?

The confusion that surrounds bar fights and other assault situations can easily obscure what should have been a clear case of a person being forced to defend himself or herself against an aggressor. You may be facing assault charges for doing nothing more than defending yourself.

Having a skilled assault lawyer representing you can help ensure that your side of the story is heard and that you receive the best defense.
