Developing Strong Strategies for Your Defense

We are dedicated to providing a quality criminal defense and we focus a large portion of our practice to assault, assault and battery and domestic violence cases. We understand how to provide a strong defense strategy geared towards helping you obtain the best possible solutions in the courtroom.


The charge of assault is bifurcated in Massachusetts:  It is either an attempted battery or an immediately threatened battery. A battery is a harmful or an un-permitted touching of another person.

Charges of assault are often can be very subjective, and people are often falsely charged with assault because of spoken words, although words alone are not sufficient to convict a defendant of assault.
