NYC Assault at a Bar Lawyers

One of the most common charges that us NYC criminal defense attorneys deal with would be assault in a bar. You might be surprised at just how easy it is to incur this type of charge. However, as NYC defense attorneys we will have your back every step of the way. Our job is to educate you, provide a solid defense for you, and help you to present the best defense possible should this case go to trial. It is also important to know that there are a lot of nuances to the charge of assault in a bar. Since we have a lot of experience defending these types of charges, we are aware of how these nuances can often provide you with a valid defense. Consider the following scenarios.

Self-Defense

The New York City statutes allow for a self-defense representation if you were involved in a bar fight and we’re arrested for it. We have aggressively defended many clients utilizing this strategy, however, it must be proven that you had a reasonable expectation of fear for your own safety or harm to yourself. In other words, you cannot just walk up to someone and start hitting them just because they might be staring at you or bothering you. It has to be more than that. Either way, our experienced attorneys can help you navigate this possible legal defense.

Mistaken Identity

Another common defense we utilize would be that of mistaken identity. The environment in a bar is usually very loud and accompanied with a lot of low lighting. Add in the fact that there usually is a large crowd of party-goers, and you can see how mistaken identity could easily occur If an altercation breaks out. We will examine this case and determine if this would be the right defense for you.

Was the person injured?

Another crucial part of our defense would be in determining whether the victim involved in the assault was actually injured or not. New York law stipulates that a person cannot simply claim they were injured. There must be an immense amount of evidence in order to prove this type of assault. Moreover, consider that we can often even provide a favorable outcome for defendants where bruises were present on the victim.

Which criminal defense is right for you? If you are reading this and you have been charged with assault in a bar in New York City, chances are you are going through a range of emotions. Bewilderment, frustration, anger, fear, sadness, and a myriad of other emotions are probably assaulting you even as you read this. Considering all that, it would definitely be in your best interest to discuss your case with us. Our attorneys with the Spodek law firm will thoroughly analyze the particular surrounding your case and will consider all avenues in mounting an aggressive defense for you. We will look for a defense that is the right fit for you, and if we cannot get the case dismissed outright, we will definitely advocate for you and negotiate for a better outcome at trial. Call us today and we would be happy to give you a consultation!
