Assault Charge Defense Lawyer Serving Charlotte

Criminal defense attorney Chris Connelly has over 25 years of criminal defense experience and personally manages each client's case. In that time, he has defended many clients against assault charges, often getting charges dismissed or reduced before trial. He understands how to present a case in the best way to the prosecutor and the judge. If you are facing assault charges, you need to talk to a lawyer with the right experience to protect your rights.

(Note that we may associate an attorney in another firm to assist with some cases. We also, of course, employ capable support staff who handle various administrative aspects of cases.)

Defending Your Rights

Assault charges often result from a misunderstanding. Consider the following examples:

  • A fan leaving a Carolina Panthers game pushes his way to the street and is arrested for being intoxicated and disruptive or assault/affray.
  • A patron in a bar fight elbows someone approaching from the rear — not knowing that it is a responding police officer — and is charged with assault on a police officer or resisting arrest.
  • A marital argument escalates until domestic assault charges (like assault on a female) are filed.
  • The "loser" in a fight at a NASCAR race at Lowe's Motor Speedway files charges against the "winner."
  • A person trying to break up a fight may appear to be a participant and then be charged.
  • A suspect who is confused and unfamiliar with the arrest process may be improperly charged with resisting arrest.
  • A person strikes another in self-defense.
