The Portland criminal defense attorney to call when you're facing assault and domestic violence charges.

Whether charged with a fight that occurred on the streets, in a bar, or inside your home, assault cases can result in lengthy jail or prison sentences.  If the assault involves domestic violence, a conviction could result in mandated treatment costing hundreds or even thousands of dollars.  A court could order an individual to stop drinking.  A court could order an individual not to have contact with the alleged victim.  A conviction for a crime involving domestic violence could also result in the loss of an individual's right to carry a firearm.  That's the bad news.

The good news is that not all is lost when charged with an assault.  As we all know, it is rare for a person to strike another person for no good reason.  Sometimes, there is a self-defense issue.  Sometimes, there is a defense of another person issue.  Sometimes there is a defense of property issue.  Sometimes, the witnesses really did not get a good view of the situation.  And, believe it or not, sometimes, just sometimes, the "victim" makes a false report to 9-1-1.

In order to get the best result possible, a person charged with such a crime should contact an experienced attorney in order to evaluate all of the possibilities.
