Using Self-Defence To Address Assault Or Battery Charges
If you have been charged with assault, you may be up against not only a criminal trial but also a civil suit advanced by the plaintiff seeking damages for assault and battery. One way to face the charges is to argue that you were acting in self-defence. But drawing on this defence can be tricky.
At Sabsay Lawyers, we are intimately familiar with the principles of physical combat and we leverage this rare understanding to help our clients apply self-defense in their fight against assault charges.
