Protecting You Against Violent Criminal Charges
Felony and misdemeanor charges such as assault can cause immense damage to your present as well as your future. In addition to the fines and jail time you serve in the near future, having a criminal record can threaten your employment and housing prospects long after you have paid your debt to society.
If you face a violent criminal charge such as assault, it is crucial to make sure you have a trusted advocate looking out for you. In Rochester and surrounding upstate New York communities, you can rely on attorney Adam Willman to be that advocate for you. He is a former Monroe County prosecutor who brings an in-depth understanding of the criminal justice system to every case he takes on.
Our Assault Defense Practice
At the Law Office of Adam J. Willman, we offer a strong defense against a wide range of violent charges, including:
- Third degree assault: intentionally causing an injury to someone, a misdemeanor charge often associated with bar fights
- Second degree assault: the presence of a weapon and causing serious injury such as disfigurement separates felony second degree assault from misdemeanor third degree assault
- First degree assault: a felony charge brought when someone is accused of causing serious injury to another person via the use of a deadly weapon such as a gun, knife, bat, etc.
All of these charges can results in fines, incarceration and a criminal record that will haunt you for the rest of your life. There is no such thing as a “minor” assault charge; you need a strong defense whether your charge is a felony or a misdemeanor.
