Charges of Assault With a Weapon

When an individual uses an object other than his or her hands in an attempt to injure another person, this act is considered assault with a dangerous instrument or deadly weapon. Such incidents of assault can result in serious injury, as opposed to just physical injury. These types of cases can be complicated to work through because they involve the question of whether the injury suffered can be deemed serious or not and whether the instrument used can be considered a deadly weapon or a dangerous instrument.

These questions will be based on the particular facts of your case. When addressing these questions, it is important to have an attorney on your side who is completely familiar with all assault laws. Throughout our combined four decades of experience, our assault attorneys in New York have handled numerous cases involving charges of assault with a weapon. The prosecution will not waste any time in building a case against you, and as former prosecutors ourselves, we are able to predict their actions.

We have extensive trial experience and we will not hesitate to take a case to court if we believe that this is most likely to protect our client's freedom.

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
