Assault and battery

The experienced criminal defense attorneys of Hunter Law Firm effectively guide clients through complex legal proceedings ranging from bond hearings to criminal trials in both state and federal courts.

Aggressive litigators counter allegations brought by police and prosecutors

Most people understand that they have certain rights when they’re taken into custody, including the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Police officers can be intimidating, and some suspects might believe that by telling their story, they can resolve their matter quickly and favorably. This likely is not the case, however. If you’ve been arrested, it is best to retain a seasoned attorney who can ensure that your rights are respected and help you avert statements that you might regret later. Our firm has the legal and practical knowledge to counter unsupported allegations and improperly collected evidence. We battle for our clients during negotiations with prosecutors and at trial, if necessary.
