Building a strong case with a defense strategy

There are two sides to every story, and this fact is particularly important when it comes to the defense of criminal charges. In North Carolina, certain alleged crimes can result in serious penalties being imposed on individuals who may be incarcerated and forced to give up certain rights if they are convicted. When a criminal matter goes to trial, it can be assumed that the prosecutor has spent time and energy preparing the best possible case against the defendant. Without legal support, that defendant may face an uphill battle to protect themselves and tell their story.

Defenses to charges of assault and battery

Fights can result in injuries, bruised emotions and damaged property. North Carolina residents should also recognize that altercations can result in criminal charges if alleged victims file charges against their alleged attackers. The crimes of assault and battery carry with them serious legal consequences that can deprive individuals of their rights and freedoms if they are convicted of their charges.
