Experienced Florida Defense Lawyer Represents Clients Charged with Assault and Battery

Skilled attorney defends residents of the West Palm Beach area facing violent crime charges

If you are charged with assault or battery, you may be facing prison time. You need an attorney who is determined and serious about fighting for you, one with the experience and knowledge to succeed. At Law Office of Scott E. Reiter, P.A., I defend individuals in the West Palm Beach area and throughout Florida accused of assault or battery. I am a true advocate for your rights if you are charged with these or other violent crimes.

Knowledgeable counselor understands assault and battery

Generally, assault is the threat of violence, and battery is any violent or unwanted touching. These charges vary by state, and the names of the two crimes are often used interchangeably. In some states, they are not considered separate offenses. Actions such as hitting, kicking, punching or pushing are considered to be assaults. Many other actions such as grabbing or spitting can also lead to these charges. I fight all types of assault and battery charges on behalf of my clients.

Proven advocate handles a range of assault cases

Assaults occur for a variety of reasons. Many assault or battery charges stem from simple fights. In these cases, I will work to show that you were acting in self-defense and are not a violent criminal. Other assaults are gang-related or occur in conjunction with other crimes such as robbery. Assaults of a sexual nature are treated differently by the law. In all cases, I will present a strong defense in an attempt to preserve your freedom.

Dedicated defense lawyer works to reduce assault charges

Most states have a variety of assault charges such as aggravated assault or assault in the first degree. Depending on the facts of your case, the state may choose to charge you with a higher-level crime than is necessary. I will work to get your charges reduced through a variety of pretrial motions. I also fight to get clients the most lenient sentence possible under the circumstances.

    Great lawyer, definitely cared about obtaining the best outcome for me. Didn’t settle for bs and checked to make sure everything was ok even after everything was said and done. Always responded to any questions I had the same day.

    After getting a DUI that could have well been a felony, Scott was able to reduce charges and recommend treatment rather than jail time, which has helped me and my family tremendously. I cannot thank him enough!
