Assault on a Police Officer

Assaulting a police officer may be one of the most complex assault charges to have to defend against in criminal court. Our team not only has more than 40 years of combined legal experience handling such difficult cases, but we are also former prosecutors for the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. Our background equips us with an invaluable perspective of both sides of the courtroom. It also means that we have been exposed to police procedure for decades and have a thorough understanding of all police proceedings.

Assaulting a police officer is typically charged as a felony and could potentially result in up to 10 years in prison. Under federal law, conviction for assaulting a police officer with a deadly weapon can carry a prison sentence of up to 20 years. Regardless of how complicated your situation may seem, we will not hesitate to challenge the allegations of the prosecution or to vigorously litigate on your behalf.
