How can an attorney help me in my assault or battery case in Florida?
Answer: Well, that will be all dependent on the individual circumstances and facts of that particular case. They’re very complicated cases for multiple reasons. One, usually in these types of cases you’ve got many emotions involved— whether it’s going to be a complete stranger, or someone you know or a family member. So the attorney is going to number one first help provide the objective perspective on things because so many emotions are involved from all different angles. So the attorney is going to come from a legal, objective standpoint on how best to come up with an outcome that satisfies the state but also satisfies the defendant or the client—in this particular case, the charged individual. But as to how they’re going to help you with the actual case itself is going to be determined on the facts of the case.
