Assault and Battery

Boise, Idaho, Defense Lawyer Handling Assault and Battery

I am a focused, determined criminal defense lawyer with life experience enabling me to understand the many factors that can lead to a physical altercation. Being charged with assault, battery or another violent crime does not make you guilty. However, facing such charges without a lawyer may keep you from ever proving otherwise - or from getting the second chance you deserve after a mistake.

Whether you are facing a charge arising from alleged domestic violence, a fight in an Idaho bar, or a disagreement at a party that led to use of a weapon, I am prepared to listen to your side of the story and find the best way to approach your defense.

2008: State v. Meeks: Battery
Mr. Meeks was at home when he heard pounding coming from down below in another apartment. He went down there to see what the noise was when according to the victim, Mr. Meeks struck him. Mr. Meeks admitted to hitting the victim, but only after the victim struck him in the arm with his hammer. The officer did not believe Mr. Meeks version of events and nor did the State. We called in the physicians assistant who treated Mr. Meeks for his injuries and she verified that his injury was consistent with being struck with a hammer. Mr. Meeks argued self-defense and the jury found him NOT GUILTY.
