Types Of Assault And Battery Charges

Attorney Francis M. Doran, Jr., represents people who have been charged with all degrees of assault and battery, including:

  • Misdemeanor assault and battery
  • Assault and battery with a dangerous weapon
  • Assault and battery against a police officer or other officer of the law
  • Assault and battery against a person aged 60 or older
  • Aggravated assault and battery

Mr. Doran understands the various levels of evidence and intent required for, as well as the penalties associated with, all degrees of assault and battery. Regardless of the specific degree of assault and battery with which you are charged, he will fight to ensure that your rights and freedoms are protected.

Accord And Satisfaction For Minor Criminal Charges

Assault and battery charges may arise out of an altercation at the bar, at a college party, in a heated argument between neighbors, or may be the result of domestic violence. A legal mechanism called accord and satisfaction can be used to quickly resolve minor civil matters and can facilitate the dismissal of minor criminal charges where both the victim and defendant agree. There are also many avenues available for alleged victims who have changed their minds and wish to drop charges.
