We Focus On Protecting Your Rights
If you have been charged with assault or another violent crime, the stakes are high. It can affect your job, your family and your freedom. It is no time to rely on the services of an unproven or inexperienced criminal defense attorney.
The experienced criminal defense lawyers at Dhar Law, LLP, in Charlestown have successfully represented clients against a wide range of violent crime charges. We conduct our own investigation and know how to find weak spots in the prosecution's case. In some instances, we are able to get a case dismissed or charges reduced. We also field a team of experienced litigators who always stand ready to advocate aggressively on our clients' behalf at trial if necessary.
We represent individuals across the full spectrum of violent crimes, including:
- Homicide and attempted murder — Defenses include showing a lack of intent, mistaken identity, self-defense or demonstrating some mitigating circumstances.
- Assault and battery — Penalties are severe, especially if someone is seriously injured or a dangerous weapon is used.
- Assault of a police officer — The term "assault" can be broadly interpreted in these cases. Conviction of assaulting a Massachusetts public officer while he or she is on the job carries the potential for stiffer penalties than other assault convictions.
- Kidnapping — Any person who forcibly confines someone against their will may face charges of kidnapping.
