Charged with Assault? We can Help!

Attorney Swanson knows that the key to these types of cases is to quickly find and interview relevant witnesses. Often, these witnesses contradict the person claiming to be the victim of the assault and this information can help us gather factual information and evidence that supports these witness statements. We have access to highly respected investigators who can help us establish defenses in assault cases, including claims of self-defense or that you were the person attacked first.

We will use this information to petition for the charges to be dismissed or at least reduced. This evidence will also be used to help Attorney Swanson obtain a not-guilty verdict at trial. We will negotiate with the prosecutor for an acceptable plea bargain or in our argument to the judge for a fair sentence.
