Treating You Right

Your legal needs come first

After Being Charged With An Assault Crime, Now What?

One thing led to another, and now you have been accused or arrested on suspicion of a misdemeanor or felony such as:

  • Assault
  • Simple affray
  • Battery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Family violence (domestic violence)
  • A weapons violation

Were you wrongly identified as the suspect? Are the charges an exaggeration of what actually occurred? Were you acting in self-defense? Do you suffer from PTSD? Did someone else accuse you to get off the hook themselves? Whatever the details are, the best defense in your case will be one you and your lawyer collaborate on.

Every set of facts is unique, and every defense strategy needs to be customized to account for those unique aspects. At Helton, Cody & Associates, PLLC, a personalized approach is a given. When you work with one or more of our lawyers in a criminal defense matter, you can be assured that your voice will be heard and your defense will be fierce.

A strong defense may highlight weaknesses in the prosecutor’s case against you while giving a prosecutor, judge and/or jury a close look at your character and the credibility of any witnesses.
