Madison, WI Assault & Battery Lawyer

Being charged with assault or battery can have detrimental effects on your future. It can change your relationship with co-workers and loved ones, and might make it difficult to move forward again. However, it is important to remember that you have rights and with those rights come power. With the right defense team on your side, there is hope for even the toughest cases. At Tracey Wood and Associates, we believe your side of the story matters.

Fight Back Against Battery and Assault Charges

Battery and assault are serious charges that require well-planned defense. There are a few different defense options that you and your attorney might want to consider, depending on the circumstances surrounding your case. Some common defenses include:

  • Self-defense — Self-defense is one of the most common defenses used in assault and battery cases because it provides a very good reason why the act might have taken place.
  • Defense of other people — This defense is similar to self-defense, but instead of defending yourself, you must prove that you were defending another person.
  • Defense of property — This defense typically enables you to use reasonable force in defense of your property, particularly your home.
  • Consent — It may be possible to use consent as a defense if you can show that the individual consented to the act and that it did not exceed the permission involved.
  • Alibi — Using an alibi as a defense can be effective if the alibi can show that you were not at the location when the battery or assault took place.

Assault and Battery Case Example
