Las Vegas Battery by Strangulation Defense Attorney

Domestic violence is a serious concern in Las Vegas, encompassing various forms of unlawful physical force or violence committed against individuals within the context of familial or domestic relationships. This can include acts of aggression towards family members, dating partners, cohabitants (such as roommates), or relatives.

One may be charged with this crime if they were accused of using physical force to restrict a person's airflow, posing a grave risk to their safety.

What to Do if You’ve Been Accused
If you've been accused of battery by strangulation, it's essential to approach the situation with careful consideration and a clear plan.
- Seek Legal Counsel: Contact an experienced criminal defense attorney like Attorney Goodman, who, as a board-certified lawyer in criminal law, specializes in assault-related cases. Our firm can provide vital guidance and representation throughout the legal process.
- Confidentiality: Avoid discussing the case with anyone except your attorney. Anything you say to others, especially on social media, can potentially be used against you in court. It's crucial to protect your rights and maintain confidentiality during this time.
- Be Patient: Your attorney will work to gather evidence and build a strong defense on your behalf. This may include examining witness statements, surveillance footage, medical records, or any other relevant information that could support your case.
- Be Transparent: Cooperate with your attorney fully and honestly, providing them with all the details surrounding the incident. Transparency is essential for crafting an effective defense strategy. Your attorney may explore various legal avenues, such as challenging the evidence, questioning the credibility of the accuser, or pursuing a plea bargain, depending on the specifics of your case.
Remember that you have the right to a fair trial, and the burden of proof rests with the prosecution. Your attorney can vigorously advocate for your rights and work to achieve the best possible outcome, whether that means having the charges reduced, dismissed, or securing an acquittal. Facing allegations of battery by strangulation is serious, but with skilled legal representation, you can navigate the legal process and work towards a just resolution.
