Simple Assault Defense Lawyer Bucks County
Accidents happen, and sometimes people get hurt. Perhaps that wasn’t your intention; maybe you were doing what you thought necessary at the time. Except now you find yourself being charged with simple assault. But what does that really mean?
Depending on the classification of the offense, whether it is a first-degree, second-degree, or a third-degree misdemeanor, sentencing could still include up to a year in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. These are the types of punitive punishments that can cripple your ability to get and hold a job, pay for living expenses, and continue providing for you and your family. It would be best if you had an experienced lawyer ready to fight for your livelihood as vigorously as you would.

Our services to those in Bucks County and the surrounding areas can provide you with a solid defense that can be the difference between time spent in jail and time spent with your loved ones, the difference between money given to the courts and funds for your bills and other daily expenses. We understand that there are multiple sides to every story, and the most important one to us is the one that matters to you: your side.
The Realities of Simple Assault Charges
At Velter Yurovsky Zoftis Sokolson, LLC, our dedicated lawyers and staff understand that there were numerous and sometimes insurmountable factors that led up to your charges. Not everyone’s circumstances are the same, and similarly, not every simple assault charge should be handled the same. Our lawyers are experienced and versed with what can be considered a simple assault charge—such as being accused of intentionally, recklessly, or knowingly causing harm or being considered a menace capable of causing harm.
However, although unfortunate, our justice system can misinterpret actions such as self-defense and defense of another person or defense of one’s property as simple assault. With an appropriate defense attorney from Velter Yurovsky Zoftis Sokolson, LLC, we can fight for the simple assault charges to be reduced to these more manageable offenses or dismissed based on a lack of criminal intent or a lack of evidence.
There is also the matter of sentencing being determined by the severity of the incident and your prior record. Often, this leads to harsh, unrealistic punishments for even first-time offenders. Our attentive lawyers in Bucks County will ensure that you are given a charge and, therefore, a reasonable, appropriate, and justifiable punishment.
Regardless of the charge, the degree, or prior record, you are entitled to a suitable and established defense attorney with experience in cases like these. You deserve to ensure that you are knowingly receiving the best possible outcome for your situation.
