Aggressive Defense For Aggressively Prosecuted Crimes

Allegations of physical assault or battery are taken seriously by police and often prosecuted aggressively. In some cases, a conviction can lead to jail time or other serious consequences.

If you have been accused of an assault or another violent offense, an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you protect your rights and fight to help you reach the best possible outcome. In certain situations, a lawyer can have charges thrown out based on a lack of evidence; in others, they can be reduced significantly.

Contact my Worcester office today and schedule an appointment to learn more about your rights and options in assault and battery cases.

Extensive Experience With Massachusetts Assault Charges Of All Kinds

I am Worcester criminal defense lawyer Nicole Colby Longton. I have extensive experience defending clients against assault charges of all kinds. I can represent you if you have been charged with:

  • Domestic assault and battery charges related to family disputes “domestic violence”
  • Assault charges related to fights
  • Aggravated assault
  • Assault with a weapon such as a firearm, knife or other dangerous object
  • Assault and battery of a police officer, sometimes referred to as “A&B PO”
  • Resisting arrest, a charge that can be used by law enforcement when it comes down to an officer’s word against a suspect’s
  • Assault in conjunction with a robbery, burglary or drug crime

As with all other criminal matters I handle, I will investigate and research your legal matter thoroughly. I make it a practice to obtain any and all records from law enforcement, to employ private investigators when necessary and to obtain any available surveillance videos to aggressively challenge inappropriate arrests; I will exhaust these and any other available defense methods on your behalf. I have a reputation for going above and beyond what is customary, and I am known for getting results when it counts.
