Our Client's Say the Best Things

Assault Lawyer

In New York State, assault crimes come with serious legal consequences. If you have been accused of committing Assault or Harassment contact Chris Brown Law to start discussing your legal defense. 

Assault Law in New York State

Assault convictions in New York can range from a misdemeanor up to a felony conviction. The alleged victim needs to be physically injured from the assault before a conviction can be imposed upon the defendant. If there was a lack of any physical injury or you can prove that the assault was carried out in an act of self-defense, your defense attorney may use those factors to argue your case.

If you are found guilty of a misdemeanor, such as assault in the third degree, you may have to pay a fine of up to $1,000 and serve up to one year in prison. A felony assault charge carries a minimum of a three-year prison sentence and can range up to 25 years. If you are found guilty of assaulting a police officer, you could get up to 30 years in prison.

Summoning Witnesses: If any witnesses were present at the scene of the alleged crime who could provide testimonies that may help your case, they will be called into court to give an account of all the details.
