Protect Your Future from a Criminal Conviction

While battery is defined as “the intentional use of force or violence upon the person of another,” assault is merely the threat of violence toward another, to the point that they fear for their safety. If you were accused of either of these crimes, the consequences can be severe. Make sure you have help from an experienced Baton Rouge criminal defense lawyer. Call Dewey & Braud Law, LLC for over 15 combined years of proven results.
