Assault Charges Lawyer in Gettysburg

So many lawyers presume you to be guilty. It’s shocking really. They will actually do the government’s job for them in convincing you to plead guilty when you are innocent. In their world, it is better to give up. Not us. We know the law.

Ever been punched in the face?

That is the number one question you need to ask any potential criminal defense attorney that you are considering. Most criminal defense attorneys are sheepish wimps. Yup. That’s the truth. They have no idea what violence is. Sure, they might watch boxing or MMA. But we all know that in the real world. There’s no referee. Time limits don’t exist. Weight classes don’t matter. And that if the opponent gets to “murder” before you do, you die. If your attorney has no frame of reference of what an unscripted real world no holds barred fight is, then how can they effectively paint the picture of the emotional soup that is the nanosecond response time that you had to make a decision?

Focus on the long term

You don’t just hire us to “take care of your case”. You hire us to protect your future. Your future is way more than the current case. Most attorneys couldn’t tell you any consequences for a conviction beyond that which is announced in the courtroom. We look at the long term:
