The New York criminal lawyers and former Manhattan prosecutors at Crotty Saland PC have extensive experience prosecuting and defending those charged with or arrested for Assault in New York. This experience on both sides of the law has assisted us in successfully defending teachers, doctors and other professionals charged with violent crimes ranging from New York misdemeanor Assault in the Third Degree (New York Penal Law 120.00) to more serious felony Assault charges.
While no New York criminal lawyer can guarantee a client a specific result based on past outcomes, he or she should be able to educate you on the laws and statutes that are pertinent to the crime(s) of Assault in New York. Armed with this information, you and your New York criminal defense attorney can both identify and implement the appropriate defense to the allegations that you face.
In order to help facilitate the educational process, Crotty Saland PC has created the New York Assault Law & Crime Information Page. This page has numerous links to legal decisions as well as analysis of the Assault charges in New York including Assault in the Third Degree (New York Penal Law 120.00), Assault in the Second Degree (New York Penal Law 120.05) and Assault in the First Degree (New York Penal Law 120.10). Additionally, the New York Assault law and criminal information page has material on how an Assault is magnified or “bumped up” if a weapon or dangerous instrument is used or if the victim is a police officer or MTA employee. Moreover, the New York Assault crimes information page addresses other legal issues that may impact your case such as what constitutes “physical injury” and “serious physical injury.” While the New York Assault criminal law page is no substitute for an in depth consultation with your New York criminal lawyer and should not be construed as advice on how to deal with your particular issue(s), it is a beginning point on how to understand Assault in New York.
