Ocean County NJ Assault and Threat Charges Lawyer

Criminal Defense Attorneys in Toms River, New Jersey

New Jersey takes an aggressive stance when it comes to prosecuting violent crimes such as assault charges. Accordingly, prosecutors are often hesitant to plea bargain these crimes. Resulting convictions lead to serious consequences such as a permanent criminal record, jail time, probation, and steep fines. This is why Ocean County criminal defense attorney Will Proetta and the lawyers at our Toms River law firm, place great emphasis on working closely with our clients to build a vigorous and aggressive defense against assault and threat charges. Through experience and hard work, we are often able to succeed in getting the charges downgraded or even dismissed entirely. From our office in Toms River, our criminal defense lawyers take on assault cases throughout Ocean County, including in Brick, Jackson, Lakewood Township, Manchester, Point Pleasant, and Seaside Heights. To speak with an experienced Ocean County assault defense attorney, contact us at (848) 238-2100 today for a free initial consultation.

Assault and Threat Defense Lawyer in Lakewood NJ

Assault charges commonly arise out of alcohol-induced fights, domestic violence between spouses, and even sometimes arguments between neighbors. Regardless of the circumstances behind your assault offense, you can rest assured that our lawyers will aggressively challenge the state’s case against you while working with the prosecution to come to a fair resolution. Due to the aggressive nature of these crimes, it is typical for assault charges to be exaggerated or “over-charged” to a higher degree offense than necessary, which can expose you to graver penalties and or incarceration. As such, our lawyers rely on the facts of each particular case in order to remove all knee-jerk emotion arising out of the incident.
