In Maryland, a prosecutor can bring a charge of assault and battery against a defendant, or the alleged victim of an assault can take out a warrant against an alleged perpetrator based on the alleged victim’s complaint alone.
In either situation, you need representation by an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer. Your freedom and your future are at stake.
The Law Offices of Allan H. Rombro aggressively defends clients accused of all types of violent crimes, including:
- Assault and battery
- Simple assault
- Domestic violence
- Aggravated crimes
- Weapons charges
- Sexual assault
We are experienced, knowledgeable and determined to defend our clients’ rights and freedom.
A Careful Examination of the Facts
Under Maryland law, there are multiple degrees of assault and battery charges with widely ranging penalties. A charge of first degree assault and battery is punishable by up to 25 years in prison, while a second degree charge carries a possible sentence of 10 years. Lesser charges carry lesser potential penalties.
In preparing your defense, our firm will first obtain all evidence in the possession of the prosecutor. We will review your story and compare it with what the prosecutor used as the basis for the charge. It is surprising how different and contradictory these two sides can be. Sometimes the prosecution’s main witness has fatal flaws that can undermine his or her credibility on the stand. Sometimes other facts can cast doubt on the prosecutor’s theory of the event.
The Law Offices of Allan H. Rombro will carefully review all relevant facts of the case with the aim of:
- Developing a successful defense of the charge itself
- Obtaining a reduction to a lesser charge
Allan H. Rombro understands the law regarding violent crimes. Whenever possible, he will seek to lower the charge through negotiation. He will then work to build a strong and persuasive case designed to obtain the best outcome possible.
