Violence in the Workplace

Sometimes at work, things can get a bit stressful. It is not uncommon for coworkers to get aggravated with one another. In some case, coworkers get into a physical altercation as a result of their anger. If you have been involved in such an altercation, contact The Law Office of Matthew Galluzzo. Without a knowledgeable and experienced attorney on your side, violence in the workplace can be a complex type of case to work through, and you may have to face professional ramifications or criminal charges for the incident.

We Work to Defend You & Your Future

As former prosecutors with more than 20 Years of combined experience, our assault lawyers in New York have represented numerous individuals facing charges of workplace violence. The most common cases we have handled involve intentional attacks that resulted in physical injury. Even when no one is hurt but blows were thrown, the parties can be arrested for attempted assault. We have also handled cases that involve emails, phone calls, or voicemails that were perceived to be threatening.

Regardless of the circumstances, your professional license may be at risk of suspension or revocation. When incidents of workplace violence are reported, your actions, even if they were in self-defense, may affect your ability to continue practicing in your field, which is why you need an attorney. Because we are former prosecutors, we have a good relationship with the local prosecutor’s office. We can negotiate a plea bargain so that you can avoid having a permanent mark on your criminal record in exchange for community service or enrollment in an anger management program.
