Assault, Battery & Violent Crimes

A bar fight can be a big deal and can lead to charges for substantial or aggravated battery. Our Criminal Defense Team represents individuals who have been accused of assaulting or harming another. These cases can be complex, and often turn into issues of self-defense and witness credibility. A violent crime attorney from Axley will have the trial experience to help its clients present their best case.

In addition to substantial and aggravated battery, our Criminal Defense Team represents clients accused of:

  • Reckless injury
  • Assaults charges
  • Injury by negligent use of weapons, explosives, or fire

Our lawyers understand the stakes. We will promptly meet with you, whether it is at Axley’s offices or in jail. During our free initial consultations, we will explain to you the entire process. We will expeditiously acquire the evidence necessary to analyze your case and develop aggressive defense strategies for trial. For cases that will not proceed to a trial, we will work carefully with you and the prosecutor to handle those cases in a fashion that will result in the best possible outcome for you.
