Assault and Battery

Assault and battery are actually two separate charges: assault implies the threat of violence, whereas battery implies physical harm has been done. The laws are incredibly complex, and a conviction can land you in prison. You’ll need a strong and aggressive New Jersey criminal lawyer on your side.

Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq offers you passionate, comprehensive defense against assault charges. We work quickly and effectively to build a case for your defense, and strive to have your charges dropped completely. In cases where the assault charges cannot be dropped, we put our formidable negotiation and litigation skills to good use to have them reduced, thus leading to a lesser sentence.

Assault Charges in New Jersey

There are different levels of assault charges in New Jersey and throughout the country. The most well-known charges are simple assault, which is handled in a municipal court, and aggravated assault, which is an indictable offense. A simple assault conviction can lead to fines and up to six months in jail. An aggravated assault conviction can cost you thousands of dollars in fines and restitution, and land you in prison for up to 10 years. The circumstances of the event, whether or not another party was injured, and whether or not you had what could be construed as a deadly weapon on your person all contribute to which assault charges you face.

Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq can protect your rights in every case, and handles accusations of:

  • Aggravated assault
  • Felony assault
  • Physical assault
  • Sexual assault
  • Simple assault
  • Verbal assault

When you’re charged with assault, it is up to the prosecution to prove that you intended to harm another person. Our job is to build a case based on evidence that you had no such intention. We know that your life and your future may be on the line, so we fight hard to protect you.

An assault and battery conviction can have serious consequences. Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq stands by your side every step of the way. Please call 1-800-923-3456 or contact us online to speak with a dedicated New Jersey criminal lawyer today.

Johnathan Kessous did a fantastic job handling my case. I hope i never need his expertise again...but if I do, he would be my first choice for legal representation. I had gotten a speeding ticket on the NJTPK going 84 in a 55 which resulted in a state trooper issuing me a 5 point ticket. Johnathan got it reduced down to zero points... just a fine.

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!
