Assault & Battery

A Real Trial Attorney

Defending Against Assault and Battery Charges in Wisconsin

All it takes is one misstep, one misunderstanding, or one bad decision to leave a good person facing criminal charges for assault and battery. Once a punch is thrown or threats are hurled, it is too late to go back and change things. What you can do is make sure you have an experienced criminal defense attorney working to protect your future.

I have been defending individuals in Madison and surrounding Wisconsin communities for more than 30 years. I served as a criminal prosecutor earlier in my career, so I understand how the prosecution will build their case and where the potential weaknesses are. You can rely on me to pursue the best outcome possible via plea negotiations or fighting for you in court.

I defend against all types of assault and battery charges, including:

  • Misdemeanor battery: A Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to 9 months in jail and fines as high as $10,000.
  • Felony battery: A Class E, Class H or Class I felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison and fines as high as $50,000.

There is no such thing as a “minor” battery charge. Having a violent crime – misdemeanor or felony – on your record can lead to long term complications and limit your opportunities. The only way to avoid these consequences is to have an aggressive defense as soon as possible.
