Assault charges can be filed if an individual attempts to knowingly or recklessly cause bodily harm to another person, whether a deadly weapon was involved or not. If you have been charged with assault in the state of New York, even if it’s a misdemeanor charge, it can leave a mark on your record and your future. That’s why you need to fight aggressively to protect your rights.

At Lerner & Lerner, P.C., we will provide a thorough investigation of the facts of your case, leaving no stone unturned in our efforts to obtain the best results possible in your case. We will investigate to determine if the assault was provoked, if you were defending yourself, if the wrong person is being accused or if the victim has a motive to lie. It is often the loser of a fight who is the first to run to the police.
