Brooklyn Assault Lawyers – Defending Your Rights After an Accusation of Assault

If you or someone you love has been accused of assault in Brooklyn, I know you’re scared. Assault charges bring steep penalties like jail time, probation, fines, anger management classes, and criminal records. But with an experienced Brooklyn assault lawyer on your side, you can protect your future.

Keep reading to understand how a skilled assault attorney defends clients in Brooklyn, and why choosing the right lawyer for your specific case is so important. I’ll also explain what sets the Spodek Law Group apart if you need top-notch legal representation for an assault charge.

How Can a Brooklyn Assault Lawyer Defend Your Case?

Let’s start by looking at the key ways a knowledgeable Brooklyn assault lawyer builds a strong defense:

Investigating the Incident

Your attorney will thoroughly examine what happened during the alleged assault. They look for inconsistencies, evidence tampering, provocation, self-defense arguments, and more.

Interviewing Witnesses

Witness accounts could make or break your case. Your lawyer will question all witnesses and challenge inconsistencies in their versions of events.

Gathering Evidence

Any photos, videos, medical records, police reports, or other evidence will be meticulously collected and scrutinized for errors or bias.

Negotiating with the Prosecutor

Based on their case strengths and weaknesses, your attorney may successfully negotiate dismissal of charges or reduction to a lesser offense.

Seeking Case Dismissal

If the evidence is weak, your lawyer can argue for the judge to dismiss the charges at preliminary hearings or pre-trial motions.

Presenting Your Defense at Trial

If it goes all the way to trial, your lawyer will aggressively defend you before a jury and highlight all reasonable doubt.

Why Choosing the Right Assault Lawyer Matters

Not all assault attorneys are equal. Because these charges are so serious, you need legal counsel with these key strengths:

Knowledge of Assault Laws and Penalties

Assault laws are complex and constantly evolving. Choose a lawyer well-versed in current NY assault statutes and potential sentences.

Familiarity with Local Courts and Judges

A lawyer who regularly practices in Brooklyn will know the judges’ tendencies and home field advantage. Look for this experience.

Resources for Thorough Case Investigation

Top attorneys have relationships with forensic experts, investigators, and others to dig deep into the accusations.

Negotiation Skills for Plea Bargains

Strong negotiators can win favorable plea deals for reduced charges in many assault cases. Seek proven deal-making skills.

Trial Experience and Litigation Skills

Not all cases can be plea bargained away. Your lawyer should have the litigation experience to defend you in court if needed.
