Wilmington Assault And Battery Defense Lawyers

Assault is a threat of violence, leading right to the moment of actual attack. Battery is the attack that then follows. You can be charged separately for these actions, but they usually come packaged together.

Conviction for assault and battery in North Carolina has harsh consequences. A misunderstanding in a tavern, at home, or just horsing around with friends can result in jail time and a blot on your record that will not go away.

Attorney Thomas S. Hicks of Hicks Law Firm, PLLC, in Wilmington, has defended hundreds of people charged with violent acts: assault and battery, aggravated assault, domestic violence, assault with a weapon, gun violations, and the most common of all, resisting arrest. In each case the system will have you in its crosshairs. You now need a lawyer who knows North Carolina law and has kept clients just like yourself — ordinary people who have gotten themselves in trouble — out of jail.

The level of the assault charges is determined by numerous factors, including the level of intent involved, whether it is a repeat offense, whether or not a weapon was involved, and the seriousness of the other party's injuries.

Tommy Hicks will question whether the charge fits the act that was committed. When possible, he will seek to have the charges dismissed or negotiate a lesser charge. At all times the objective will be to spare you from the harshest treatment the law provides.

If you have been arrested for assault and battery you must choose representation that is knowledgeable of the intricacies of North Carolina law and unafraid to be aggressive on your behalf.
