Providence Assault & Battery Lawyer
Assault and/or battery may form a charge against a person although an individual
may be charged with assault or battery only. Assault and battery charges
can result from fights between customers at a bar to domestic violence
incidents to assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. If you or someone
you know has been charged with assault and/or battery in Providence or
elsewhere in Rhode Island, having an experienced Rhode Island defense
attorney can make the difference between serving jail time or not. We
recommend that you
contact a defense attorney at our firm for an initial consultation. After reviewing your case, we
can determine what legal steps need to be taken on your behalf. We have
effectively defended countless cases of assault/battery.
Consequences of Assault / Battery Charges in Rhode Island
