What do I do if I am charged with a Long Island criminal assault?

If you are you facing assault or other criminal charges in Suffolk or Nassau County, it is important to find an experienced Long Island criminal defense lawyer to stand by your side and aggressively fight the charges. If you made a horrible mistake, the lawyer will work to get your charges reduced. If you were acting in self-defense or have been wrongly accused, the lawyer will fight to get the charges dropped. You do have rights and finding the right lawyer could mean the difference between years in prison or complete freedom.

How will a lawyer help my case?

A lawyer will examine each stage in the arrest and look for mistakes that can work in your defense.

  • Was protocol was followed throughout every step in the process?
  • Is the alleged victim’s story convincing?
  • Is there enough evidence?
  • Are there witnesses?
  • Was the assault an act of self-defense?
