Every allegation of an assault in the Miramar area is a serious matter. Although the basic form of this offense is only a misdemeanor, a conviction can still come with harsh consequences, including a potential jail sentence, heavy fines, and a criminal record.

In addition, some versions of assaults are among the most serious offenses in the State’s criminal code. Allegations that an attack involved a deadly weapon or resulted in severe bodily harm are felonies, where convictions can result in multiple-year prison terms. Our tenacious defense team at Rossen Law Firm is here to help you to avoid this outcome. A Miramar assault lawyer can evaluate the prosecutor’s case, obtain evidence that helps demonstrate your innocence, and protect your Constitutional rights during all court sessions.

Many Assault Cases are Misdemeanors Under State Law

Assault cases come in many forms and levels of severity. However, most fall under the basic definition laid out in Florida Statute § 784.011. This statute defines assault as an offense where a person threatens to cause physical injury to another with the intent to cause harm.

According to the law, these misdemeanors are of the second degree. This means that a conviction comes with a maximum jail sentence of six months. Even so, this is a rare outcome. Unless the behavior involved was especially egregious or the defendant has a lengthy criminal record, the court is far more likely to order the payment of a fine. Still, this will always result in the creation of a criminal record. An expert Miramar assault attorney helps you avoid these outcomes and provides a vigorous defense every step of the way.

When Does an Assault Case Become a Felony?

Not every instance of an alleged assault is a misdemeanor. In fact, state law offers more severe examples of conduct that fall into the category of felonies. Whether a charge is a felony depends upon the identity of the alleged victim, whether a weapon was present during the event, or if the event resulted in serious bodily harm.

Aggravated assault is a felony of the third degree, and convictions carry prison sentences as long as five years. Having a felony on your record can limit your ability to own a firearm and jeopardizes your chances of getting a good job or proper housing. An award-winning Miramar assault lawyer is ready to fight to prevent this from happening.

A Miramar Assault Attorney is Prepared to Defend Your Rights In and Out of Court

When you face assault accusations, you need to act quickly to protect yourself. Whether the alleged offense is a misdemeanor or a felony, a conviction can still bring disastrous consequences. You could face hefty fines, the creation of a criminal record, the formation of restraining orders, and even time behind bars.

Disputing these charges requires a knowledge of the law and the ability to present arguments in court. A Miramar assault lawyer will help in both of these areas. Our expert lawyers work to hear your side of the story and evaluate the prosecutor’s evidence. We then form defense strategies that aim to weaken the State’s evidence and create reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors. Schedule your strategy session with Rossen Law Firm today to get started.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
