Defending Your Rights And Freedom
Police do not always ask enough questions or even arrest the right person. If you are charged with assault, you need an aggressive defense to protect your rights and present your side of the story.
At Faith, Ledyard & Faith, PLC, in Avondale, Arizona, we know that assault charges can have far-reaching consequences. In addition to jail time, a conviction can affect employment, family court matters, civil liberties and more. Our criminal defense lawyers will do everything they can to avoid a conviction or minimize the long-term impact.
Assault charges must be taken seriously. We represent the accused throughout the West Valley and Greater Phoenix, including personnel at Luke Air Force Base. For a free consultation, call us at 623-806-8994.
Experienced Assault Defense Lawyers
We vigorously defend people accused of all types of misdemeanor and felony assault charges, including:
- Threatening or intimidating
- Domestic assault
- Aggravated assault
- Sexual assault
Perhaps you were jumped or provoked. Perhaps the episode was fueled by alcohol. Perhaps an argument got out of control. Whatever the allegations, whatever the circumstances, we are committed to aggressively representing you to prevent this incident from costing your freedom or ruining your future.
A criminal record for assault could jeopardize your professional licenses or make you ineligible for certain jobs. For service members, an assault conviction can cancel security clearances or even end your military career. Military or civilian, a felony conviction for assault could forever bar you from possessing firearms.
Skilled Criminal Defense By Former Prosecutors
Our defense attorneys are former prosecutors who know how to confront an assault allegation. We will explore all of your affirmative defenses such as duress, self-defense, defense of another person, or defense of your premises or property. We will also challenge the prosecution’s evidence, including identification of physical evidence, witness statements, motives for the victim to lie and how the case was investigated by law enforcement.
We will aim for dismissal of charges, a reduction to a lesser offense — such as disorderly conduct — or a resolution that avoids jail time or keeps this incident off your record, like anger management counseling or substance abuse treatment. If your freedom or career is on the line, we are prepared to go all the way to trial.
