Montgomery Assault Attorney
Assault & Battery Lawyer in Montgomery
Assault and battery are two distinct crimes which are often charged together. The offense of assault can be committed if a person threatens another with physical harm, causing them to fear for their safety or their lives. Battery is committed when a individual causes significant physical injury to another person.

Protecting Your Rights & Future
Being accused of a violent crime like assault and battery is a stressful legal situation no individual wants to face. Not only could there be serious legal implications such as time in prison, but your private reputation would be tarnished. Employers are unlikely to want to hire someone with a conviction of a violent offense on their record, and landlords may not want to rent their property.
