Assault & Threat Offenses
A major category of criminal offenses handled by our defense attorneys in Union County are assault and other threat crimes. The biggest blocks of these violations involve second degree and third degree aggravated assault charges defended at the Superior Court in Elizabeth, as well as simple assault offenses in Cranford, Linden, Plainfield or other municipal courts in the county. If you choose to hire The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we will fight for you utilizing all of the resources that one of New Jersey’s largest criminal defense firms can provide. Our efforts frequently result in dismissal of an assault complaint and, in almost all cases, avoidance of the penalties that come with a conviction on the original charge.
