Queens Assault Lawyer – Queens Self Defense Lawyer

Queens Assault Lawyer

Each year thousands of people are wrongfully prosecuted for assault in Queens. Despite valid self defense claims, the NYPD will usually arrest the winner of the fight despite the fact that the other person may have started it. Assault can include, among other things, Assault With a Deadly Weapon and Assault With Intent to Rape, Maim or Murder. Whereas a fist fight would be considered a simple assault, assaults involving deadly force are considered far more serious and carry much more severe prison sentences.Violent crimes are taken very seriously and typically involve prison terms and high bail amounts or even no bail amounts. The stakes are higher in violent crimes than in almost any other type of criminal charges. Judges and juries are very tough on assault cases because of the damage that has been done to a victim.
