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.

I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.
