It doesn't take much.
A moment of anger. That's all it takes. Someone says something to you, you respond, and before you know it punches are being exchanged. Or perhaps you feel threatened and use your fist or a weapon to defend yourself. Or maybe it is an argument over a parking spot or an insult. Before you know it, someone has gotten hurt and the police have arrived. What began as a seemingly insignificant event, the kind of thing that happens every day, has mushroomed into a major event. And suddenly you need a lawyer.
When experience really counts.
Whenever someone is injured, district attorneys tend to respond harshly. They often insist on a criminal conviction and jail time. Whether the case involves a black eye or a shooting, Steven Goldman has the experience and determination to give you the defense you need. He has represented literally hundreds of people charged with assault. He knows how to present a case to a DA so that they don't see you as just another "perp," but as an individual who acted for a reason. By humanizing you, he's often able to soften the DA's position and to work-out a reasonable plea.
When Trial is the Only Option.
Of course, sometimes a plea cannot be worked-out and trial is the best option. Goldman has tried many assault cases. He knows what works, and how to get the best result. When your case is heading toward trial, you will want Goldman in your corner.
