Assault, Battery and Domestic Violence Charges in New JerseyAssault, Battery, Domestic Violence Charges

If you have been arrested for assault, battery or criminal domestic violence charges in the state of New Jersey, you probably have a lot of questions about what is going to happen next.  Most criminal defendants fear the lengthy legal process, the potential outcomes, and the pressure of going to trial.

The team at the Tormey Law Firm understands that you are worried, scared, and uncertain about your future.  We want to empower you with information so that you feel confident in what lies ahead.

If you’ve been accused of one of the above crimes, keep these important points in mind:

  • Aggravated battery charges and an aggravated assault felony are two completely different crimes and carry completely different penalties, though the media often mistakenly uses these terms interchangeably. Your attorney should analyze your EXACT charges when developing his or her defense strategy. Before you stress about the outcome of your case, make sure you fully understand what you are charged with in the first place.
  • New Jersey takes the issue of domestic violence very seriously, and the penalties are severe. This is why it is crucial to hire an experienced domestic violence lawyer at the very beginning of your case. NJ domestic violence cases, like those around the nation, are often “he said/she said,” and this creates a very good opportunity for your attorney to build a successful defense.
  • Convictions for crimes considered to be violent, or threatening of violence, can have a lasting impact on your life. Not only are you facing jail time and fines but you could also be labeled as a convicted violent felon, a stigma that could affect your ability to work, volunteer, or even live in certain areas.
  • All attorneys are not created equal. Far too often, some attorneys will pressure their clients to accept less-than-ideal plea deals in these cases because they do not want to waste time and energy on a difficult or complex case. A good attorney will fight for you and always exhaust every available option to get you the best outcome possible.

If you have been charged with assault, battery, or criminal domestic violence in New Jersey, the Tormey Law Firm is here to be your legal partner and advocate.

We believe in being aggressive and proactive in your criminal defense, and we want you to feel secure that you have seasoned legal representation for your case with one of our domestic violence lawyers.
