Assault and assault and battery cases can be misdemeanors or felonies. Barnwell Law has successfully defended clients in both misdemeanor and felony assault cases. Many people accused of assault or assault and battery have valid Self-Defense claims. In these cases, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you did not use reasonable and proportional self-defense.
As such, these can be difficult cases for the prosecution to win. Barnwell Law is not afraid to take your case to trial if it can be won, or help negotiate the best possible outcome depending upon the circumstances.
