The cops lie. They make up stories based on what they want to report. This happens more often than you think.
The prosecution will frame this case to paint a picture of a black and white story where you are without a doubt the guilty party simply because you were the one that threw the first punch. That is not how things work in the real world. In the real world, sometimes you have to punch someone to stop them from punching you. More often that not, there is a lot more to the story. The cops simply aren’t telling the whole truth.
You need a lawyer who knows how fights happen and how to present that in court. Most lawyers are pampered and have no idea how to fight or how violence happens. They have never thrown a punch. They have never been in a situation where they had to throw a punch. They Simply follow the law because they don’t know any different – just like the prosecution.
Attorney Justin McShane is different. He trains in Mixed Martial Arts everyday. He gets hit in the face. He knows how violence happens in the real world. He uses this knowledge in court and presents the real story in order to protect his clients.
Just because you hit someone, does not make you automatically guilty. There is so much more that has to be proven. The circumstances of how the punch happened matter. You were defending yourself and should not be facing these charges.
Assault charges are very serious and carry a huge impact on your future. An assault conviction will stay on your permanent criminal record and anyone doing a background check will be able to see it. This is a conviction that will follow you forever.
