Our Assault and Domestic Violence Defense Practice
We handle the defense of all types of assault crimes, including allegations of physical violence arising out of:
- Domestic abuse, including hearings regarding the issuance of a PFA (protection from abuse) order
- Sexual assault
- Recklessly endangering charges
- Terroristic threats
- Bar fights
- Disagreements or altercations with neighbors
- Parking lot or garage muggings or assaults
When you hire us to defend you on an assault charge, we will look at all the facts, evidence and circumstances of your case, so that we can identify and develop all potential defenses. We will interview all witnesses and personally examine police or medical reports. We will determine whether there is evidence to support a claim of self-defense or, as can often be the case with allegations of sexual assault, factors that suggest that the sexual contact was consensual.
Under Pennsylvania law, you can be charged with felony aggravated assault under certain circumstances:
- If the victim is in a statutorily protected class (such as a police officer)
- The victim was in fear of bodily harm or death
- The assault caused serious bodily harm
- You used a weapon during the assault
We aggressively defend people charged with aggravated assault.
