Charged with assault in Morris County, NJ?
Assault laws exist to protect individuals from the possibility of physical
violence. Because abusive and threatening behavior tends to escalate very
easily into physical violence, law enforcement officers take assault accusations
very seriously. It is sometimes the case that innocent individuals get
charged with assault if only to ensure that no further aggression can
possibly take place. No matter what the circumstances behind your charges
may be, a skilled attorney can protect you from unfair treatment and defend
you against unfounded charges.
