Advocating For You After Allegations Of Assault & Battery
Assault and battery are serious offenses that are classified as violent crimes in New Jersey. Prosecutors pursue convictions vigorously, although the degree of the assault charge will vary depending on the type of injury intended or caused to the victim. To preserve your freedom, you need a qualified and aggressive assault and battery lawyer in New Brunswick. Jack Venturi Law provides legal representation to clients facing all types of assault charges.
Types Of Assault Charges In New Jersey
The law recognizes three types of injury in assault and battery cases: bodily injury, significant bodily injury, and serious bodily injury. The charges and penalties are influenced by the type of injury the victim sustains. For this reason, a good defense attorney will attack the nature of the injury along with the other defenses used in an assault case.
At Jack Venturi Law, we represent clients in many types of assault cases, including:
- Simple assault
- Aggravated assault
- Terroristic threats
- Endangering an injured victim
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Pointing a firearm
- Reckless endangerment
- Disarming a law enforcement officer
The consequences of an assault conviction can include time in jail or prison, fines, community service, probation, and other penalties. We represent clients facing all types of assault and battery charges. Our New Brunswick office is easy to reach from anywhere in the state, and our attorney has represented clients in courts throughout New Jersey.
The Right Lawyer When The Stakes Are High
New Jersey’s No Early Release Act applies to some types of assault charges, so the stakes are high. According to this law, the defendant is required to serve at least 85% of the prison sentence before being eligible for release. Our New Brunswick assault and battery attorney can investigate the facts of your case, consider different defense strategies, and develop the best strategy for your unique situation.
