Brooklyn Felony Assault Lawyers

Assault is a very common crime in the U.S. A basic assault charge stems from a person causing physical injury to another person. It can be a very serious charge that can land you in jail for up to a year. A number of factors determine whether an assault is a misdemeanor or felony. There may be times when you are harassed, provoked or incited into assaulting someone. Regardless, it is still looked upon as a crime. The first thing you should do if charged with felony assault is contact a lawyer. They will explain your rights and give you a realistic explanation of your how your case may go.

Some factors the prosecution will consider when establishing your culpability and whether you will be charged with a felony or misdemeanor:

  • Do you have a criminal record
  • Do you know self defense or specialized martial arts training
  • Do you own a firearm
  • Was it your intent to kill the other person
  • Are you willing to plead guilty
  • Are you a threat to society

Any of those factors could spell trouble for you. It can also change a misdemeanor into a felony. Allow an experienced attorney to help you understand the best way to proceed. Without the counsel of an experienced attorney, you could wind up signing or saying something that could come back to haunt you.

If have committed assault against an individual, they do deserve compensation for your actions. At the same time, you still have rights under the law. Don’t ever allow yourself to be compromised. Regardless of your culpability, the constitution allows you to have your day in court to present your side. This is why you need to do your homework and find the best felony assault attorney to plead your case. An attorney can help you by:

  • Reviewing your case for accuracy and finding ways to keep you from facing a felony as opposed to a misdemeanor.
  • Ensuring you do not agree to things that could harm your case.
  • Requesting the court to extend leniency.
  • Finding good references to speak on your behalf about good character.
  • Presenting mitigating circumstances that could have great bearing on your case.
  • Highlighting the fact that your anger was a spur of the moment event.

An experienced felony assault lawyer has plenty of experience in these matters. They know how to poke holes in the prosecution’s case, if it comes to that. Let that attorney use what they know to help you. A good attorney can get the charges vastly reduced or dropped in certain circumstances. But you have to show a level of contrition. Things can go better for you if you do the following:

  • Apologizing to the plaintiff.
  • Paying the medical expenses.
  • Compensating the plaintiff for medical injuries
  • Paying for loss of earning.

These are factors that will put you in a much better light. An effort to make things right will give the court a lot to consider.

Another thing many people don’t know is that a felony assault could very easily turn into attempted murder. If this happens, you are talking about an entirely different ball of wax. If stalking someone or the addition of a firearm is brought into the fray, the charges could easily change.

If you have been charged with assault, seek out an attorney as quickly as possible. Let them go over your case and give you the best possible advice about your situation.
