Violent Criminal Charges
When you are arrested for violent criminal charges, you may be feeling like the penalties will ruin your life. With the help of an attorney, you can minimize these consequences.
Violent Criminal Charges | Assault
As an experienced Buffalo Criminal Defense Attorney, I am regularly asked about assault cases. If you are charged with an assault crime in the city of Buffalo, cooperate with the police but do not provide them with any information. Call an experienced lawyer immediately after your arraignment but preferably before your arraignment. It is always best to have a lawyer at your arraignment, so we can deal with your bail in front of the judge.
Violent Criminal Charges | Aggravated Assault
As an experienced Buffalo Criminal Defense Lawyer, I am often asked about aggravated assault cases. I recently had a client who was visiting bars on Chippewa in downtown Buffalo. He got into a fight and was charged with assault. In New York State, assault has three different levels, which range from a felony to a misdemeanor. Assault first and second are felonies, and assault third is a misdemeanor. Oftentimes these are based on the level of injury suffered by the complaining witness or if a weapon is used.
Violent Criminal Charges | Domestic Violence
If you’ve been charged with a domestic violence crime in New York State, the penalties and consequences on your life can be quite severe. You may be separated from your loved ones, your children, your spouse, your family, and your home. You may also spend time in jail, and you may have an order of protection issued against you to keep away from those you hold dear. It is important that you contact me immediately upon an arrest for any domestic-related charge. This could include assault, harassment, criminal mischief, criminal contempt, strangulation, or any abuse of children.
