Felony Assault

Defending Against Felonious Assault Charges In Ohio

A single punch or merely threatening someone with a deadly weapon can lead to a charge of felonious assault. Felonious assault is much more serious than simple assault, and a conviction will have devastating consequences. You may face a long prison sentence in addition to financial and other consequences. I can help.

Fighting For You Every Step Of The Way

I have helped many clients facing charges of felonious assault in my 20-year career. Often, charges of felonious assault depend upon the nature and extent of the physical injuries a person received. My background in litigating complex medical cases such as shaken baby syndrome (SBS) and my experience with forensic pathology in murder cases allow me to assess the true nature of the injuries. When you work with me, you can be sure that I will devote my attention to your case and fight relentlessly for you. From my Lancaster office, I represent clients throughout Ohio, and I focus on helping Ohio University students charged with crimes from my office in Athens.

The successful defense against felonious assault charges begins with a thorough investigation of your case. Witnesses need to be interviewed, physical evidence needs to be examined and law enforcement's investigation needs to be scrutinized in order to effectively tell your side of the story. This is why I use the investigative services of Stan Molnar. Together, we work tirelessly to build the strongest defense possible. We recognize and take seriously the fact that the rest of your life is at stake.

Preparing your defense may also involve investigating and challenging the forensic evidence in your case. I am uniquely qualified in DNA evidence and have experience in other forensic issues such as fingerprints, ballistics, crime scene investigation, eyewitness identification and more. When appropriate to the case, I work with experts who can assist with such issues. Providing expert analysis of evidence may demonstrate an alternate theory of the crime or prove your innocence.
