Assault and Battery
Fighting is never a good option but sometimes people are placed in situations where they must defend themselves or others. The law states that you have the right to defend yourself from an attacker. Unfortunately many times they arrest the person who defended themselves and label them the attacker.
Assault charges can range from misdemeanors to felonies depending on who was attacked and whether a weapon was used. If the victim is part of the family or a dating relationship, the charges could be elevated. It is important to have a lawyer who listens to you, does a thorough investigation, and fights for you.
