A serious and increasingly common criminal charge, sexual assault generally refers to any crime in which the offender subjects the victim to unwanted and offensive sexual contact. Crimes include sexual harassment, groping, assault/battery and attempted rape. Sexual assault accusations can also result in federal sexual abuse charges. Because of severe sentencing guidelines and the requirement to register as a sex offender, it is critical that an individual aggressively fight a sexual assault charge.
As with many sex crimes, sexual assault charges are often based only on the testimony of the accuser and may have little or no physical evidence. If you or someone you know is facing potential sexual assault charges, it’s critical you work with a defense team that has the experience – and proven results – in these types of cases.

Our careful and skilled pre-trial research often results in the dropping of charges before trial.
