New York Battery Defense Lawyer
Battery is committed when a person physically harms, or attempts to harm, another person. It is a crime that is commonly seen under criminal law as “assault & battery.” It may be coupled with assault because threats of violence typically occur before the actual crime of battery takes place. Battery is a very serious offense in the state of New York and law enforcement will very carefully investigate any charges of battery. In addition, if any type of weapon is used, or severe injury occurs during the commission of a battery offense, a person may be charged with aggravated battery, a more serious charge. Many
sex crimes and
robbery cases often involve battery charges.
Criminal Defense Attorney in New York, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn, NY
At the Law Offices of Brian D. Perskin, we help clients in need of legal advice, guidance and representation against a battery charge. In battery cases the prosecution many times may rely heavily on witness testimony and medical reports. However, these may be inaccurate and over-exaggerated because witnesses may be friends or family members of the victim. As seasoned lawyers we have seen many battery cases before us where our clients were wrongly accused. A person may have simply been acting in self defense against a so called “victim” who was the actual perpetrator to begin with. In proving this type of case, over the years as skilled New York battery lawyers we have had many charges against our clients dropped completely.
