If you have been just been arrested for assault and battery, you are probably in shock. As soon as you get out of jail, you should talk to an experienced lawyer and begin preparing your defense. Otherwise, a one-time mistake could end up haunting you for the rest of your life.
At The Umansky Law Firm, our lawyers are here to defend you. We represent people who have been charged with assault and battery in fights at bars, amusement parks, sports facilities or private homes in Orlando, Winter Park and other communities in central Florida.
Protecting Your Interests
Many people mistakenly think that the police will get both sides of a story before charging someone with a crime. That is not true. The police will collect information from the complainant and investigate the case until they have enough evidence to file charges. You will need someone to tell your side of the story before the state decides to file charges.
As your lawyers, we will hire investigators and obtain witness statements so we can tell your side of the story. There are defenses to assault and battery. One is that you were defending yourself or another person.
If the state has a strong case against you, you will need an attorney who can do damage control. Our attorney will work hard to keep you from being tagged with a criminal record or facing serious consequences such as jail time.
Felony Battery charges: If you are charged with a second battery offense in Florida, the second offense will be charged as a felony. If you break into someone’s home or car and commit battery, you can be charged with a life felony, punishable by life in prison.
