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 20 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.

We Have a Proven Track Record of Success

With a successful track record of challenging false accusations, we are prepared to do everything it takes to make sure your rights are safeguarded. We understand how much is at stake in your case. If you are a licensed professional, such as a person in the medical or legal fields, assault charges could end your career. We have been recognized by the media, our peers, prosecutors, and judges for our professionalism, dedication, and the high-quality counsel we provide. We bring our unique strengths and experience to each case as we collaborate to form the strongest defenses possible for our clients.

Client Reviews
Mr. Galluzzo and his team at The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo are absolutely one of the best at what they do. The work tirelessly at getting the best possible result for the case at hand and they truly care about their clients. Galluzzo and his team were able to overturn and vacate my guilty plea, then taking a big risk where I could have faced a large amount of time in prison Galluzzo took my case to trial. He walked in there with the confidence and swagger as if he already knew everything would work out for me, he laid out every single fact and hole in the prosecutions case to the jury and came away with a full acquittal on every charge after just one hour of deliberations. In an instant, I had my life back! I would most certainly recommend Matthew and his team to anyone in need of legal help. Thanks again Matt! Client
