Strong Defense Against Assault & Vehicular Assault
In recent years, the New York State Legislature has increased the penalties for violent crimes, such as assault. The new laws also allow prosecutors to more easily file charges of vehicular assault or vehicular homicide in alcohol-related accidents resulting in personal injury or death. If you have been charged with an assault crime, you should contact us as soon as possible.
At The Law Firm of Michael S. Berardino, formerly Mangialardi & Berardino in Hartsdale, New York, I am a former prosecutor, turned criminal defense attorney, who knows how prosecutors analyze and pursue assault cases. As such, my experience allows me to counter the prosecutors’ arguments and create an effective defense. I am experienced in handling all types of assault cases, including:
- Reckless assault
- Simple assault
- Assault with a deadly weapon
- Vehicular assault
- Vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter.
The level of an assault charge, and the potential penalty you face, depends upon whether the victim sustained a serious physical injury and whether a weapon was used. As with most crimes, you may also be charged with assault by “acting in concert.” This means that you may not have assaulted anyone, but you were part of a group that did.
If you have been charged with vehicular assault, or any other assault charge in the New York City area, contact The Law Firm of Michael S. Berardino, formerly Mangialardi & Berardino, as soon as possible locally at 212-983-5677 or 914-618-4167, or Toll Free at 877-776-5584. I believe in defending your rights and your freedom.
