Have you been arrested in South Dakota on assault and battery charges? Whether the accusations involve a bar fight, domestic violence, assault with a deadly weapon or any other type of assault and battery charges, you need a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney who can protect your constitutional rights and fight to minimize the negative consequences of the assault and battery arrest.
At the Christensen Law Offices in Deadwood, we have aggressively defended residents and non-residents against criminal charges, including assault and battery cases, for over 35 years. We work on criminal cases in Western South Dakota, the Black Hills area and throughout the United States. We have represented hundreds of clients arrested while visiting South Dakota for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally or the local casinos.
Most of our clients are unfamiliar with the criminal justice system and are confused or frightened by an arrest. Our role as criminal defense advocates is to relieve that fear and help our clients make decisions about their case in a calm and supportive atmosphere. Contact our offices for a free initial consultation to talk about your assault and battery charges.
The potential consequences of an assault and battery conviction can be severe, even on a first offense. Possible penalties include jail time, required restitution (financial payments to the crime victim), and fines and court costs.
If you are a non-resident of South Dakota, it is important to know that a criminal conviction will have negative consequences in your home state as well as in South Dakota.
At the Christensen Law Offices, we are known as a criminal defense law firm that is not afraid to take cases to trial — when our analysis of the case leads us to believe that a court trial is the strategy most likely to result in the least negative consequences.
If you have been arrested on assault and battery charges, you may feel alone, intimidated and guilty — even if you did not commit the acts with which you are charged. The criminal justice system is designed to make you feel that way. At the Christensen Law Offices, we work with you throughout your entire case to make sure your rights are protected and that you make decisions based on knowledgeable legal counsel — not fear.
