Assault Charges

If convicted, assault crimes carry a wide range of consequences, depending on the severity of the crime. In any case, it is important that you retain an experienced attorney who will carefully examine the charges, interview witnesses and determine if the arresting officer followed protocol appropriately.

I am attorney Scott G. Cerbin, and I have more than a decade of experience working with individuals throughout New York City who have been charged with a myriad of assault crimes, including:

  • Misdemeanor assault - Assault in the Third Degree or Assault 3
  • Felony assault - Assault 1 or 2
  • Gang assault
  • Vehicular assault
  • Harassment
  • Menacing
  • Endangering the welfare of a child
  • Aggravated harassment

Assault charges are often made in conjunction with weapons and gun charges. If convicted of misdemeanor assault, you face up to one year in jail, three years of probation and an order of protection. Felony assault penalties are far more severe and generally carry mandatory lengthy state prison sentences and post release supervision.  Regardless of the severity of your charge, I am prepared to investigate the circumstances of your arrest and your charge as I help you achieve an outcome that supports your best interests and promotes a brighter future for you and your family.

While I gear my services toward each client's specific needs, I focus on taking each case as far as it needs to go. I am a trial lawyer. My opponents are well aware of my reputation in the courtroom, and they often act accordingly. Both your current and your long-term goals are an essential part of my case-planning process. You can trust me to build a case around you that is supportive of the best outcome possible.
