Nashville Assault Defense Attorneys

Nashville Assault Defense Attorneys

Do you need a defense lawyer after being charged with assault?

While many assault charges are simple in nature (stemming from a bar fight or other altercation), more serious charges can be complex and carry stiff penalties.

If you or a family member have been charged with assault, it’s important to speak with an experienced Nashville criminal defense attorney who can assess your case and determine your best options.

Our defense team will work to reduce or dismiss your charges

At the Nashville law firm of Raybin & Weissman, we have the legal skill and expertise to address even the most serious charges. With more than 100 years of combined experience, our criminal defense attorneys have successfully defended countless clients throughout Middle Tennessee facing a wide variety of assault charges. We’ve probably even handled a case just like yours.

We have represented clients facing various assault charges, including:

  • Simple assault
  • Assault and battery
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Threatening

Our lawyers take a highly personalized approach to your case. We conduct an in-depth analysis of the events leading up to, during and immediately following your arrest. By carefully examining the evidence against you, we work to identify information that can be used to pressure the prosecution into reducing or dismissing your charges.

We examine all the evidence to help improve your position

Assault charges relate to the bodily harm of another individual. But they can also be filed against individuals who only threaten to harm another person. If you have been charged with assault, it is important to start developing your defense immediately. Evidence decays and witnesses scatter, making it vital to gather key information quickly.

Our lawyers conduct an in-depth investigation of your case to identify:

  • Conflicting witness statements
  • Lack of physical evidence
  • Deviations from proper police procedure
  • Infringements upon your constitutional rights

By collecting this information, we may improve your position during plea negotiations or develop a strategy to prove your innocence in court. Whether you wish to negotiate a plea or feel you will be better served in a court trial, our lawyers will help you achieve the most favorable outcome.

When you or a loved one are facing assault charges of any kind, contact the experienced criminal defense lawyers at Raybin & Weissman for a free consultation of your case.
