Assault Attorney in Danbury, CT
Defending Against the Accused
Assault charges are a serious legal problem that require immediate action if you hope to resolve the matter successfully. An individual can be charged with this offense without actually causing injury to another; just the threat of injury or the alleged victim claiming that they were in fear of harm can lead to a charge of assault. This situation can become even more serious if it is claimed that threats against another's life took place, even without any physical action.
If you have been arrested and charged with this crime, it is critical that you act quickly in contacting a Danbury criminal defense attorney from Jowdy & Jowdy to assist you in fighting to bring the matter under control and to a resolution.

The actions you take immediately after the arrest can have a significant
effect on the outcome of the case. It is crucial that you do not make
any statements or discuss the situation with any law enforcement officer
or other individual until your attorney is present. Many clients have
damaged their own defense cases by having lengthy discussions with apparently
"friendly" law enforcement officers or others in they encounter
during the arrest and booking process. All of what you say will be used
against you, and even your demeanor will be part of what could be brought
to court as evidence.
The legal team at the firm will immediately get into action with regard to your case, and will attend any questioning you may be required to submit to. In many cases, the charge is brought through a domestic violence call, and such cases are frequently based upon the testimony of one person. It can be a difficult matter, as even if the alleged victim recants or changes their story about what actually happened, only the prosecutor can choose to dismiss the charges. This law came about so that victims cannot be intimidated, but has resulted in innocent individuals having to face serious criminal charges and fight to be found "not guilty." The legal team understands all aspects of such charges and can review and evaluate the situation to advise you how the defense will proceed. Fast action in contacting the firm is vital.
