State and Federal Criminal Defense Attorneys Sarasota and Bradenton 

Sarasota and Bradenton Aggravated Battery and Aggravated Assault Attorneys.

The defense lawyers at Aiken and O'Halloran have extensive experience in defending aggravated battery cases. An aggravated battery charge, unlike a simple battery charge, usually involves the use of a weapon or some type of serious injury. These types of charges sometimes arise as a result of domestic battery situations. If a firearm was used, you could be facing a minimum mandatory jail sentence.

Sarasota Aggravated Assault Attorneys

If you threatened someone with a weapon such as a gun, a knife, a club or some other deadly weapon, you could be charged with aggravated assault. Sometimes even road rage can result in an aggravated assault charge. We have experience defending these types of cases.

You may have acted in self-defense.
Under new Florida law, you have the right to stand your ground.
The police may have arrested the wrong person.
Your use of force may have been justified.

Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer

Unfortunately, many times the police, to justify their use of excessive force (beating you up), will charge you with battery on a law enforcement officer to keep you from suing them. Sometimes, they will charge you with resisting arrest with violence to cover up their police misconduct.

The experienced lawyers at Aiken and O'Halloran will investigate your case. There may be a video of your arrest on your incident. There may be witnesses who saw what really happened. Our quick investigation and contact with the prosecutor may keep your case from being filed. We may be able to get the charges dropped or your case dismissed.

Put your future in your hands. Hire an attorney who is working for you now.
