Assault Charge Lawyers in Moorestown, NJ Navigating Complex Cases with Diligence in Burlington County, Camden County, Gloucester County, and Throughout South Jersey

In New Jersey, assault charges range from simple disputes to serious offenses, carrying consequences that can alter the course of one’s life. At Attorneys Hartman, Chartered, we understand the intricacies of New Jersey’s assault laws and the significant impact they can have on our clients' futures. As seasoned New Jersey assault defense attorneys, our firm is dedicated to navigating the complexities of these cases with a deep understanding of local legal nuances.

Assault in New Jersey is categorized into two main types: simple assault and aggravated assault. Simple assault, often arising from minor physical confrontations, is considered a disorderly persons offense. Aggravated assault, on the other hand, involves more severe circumstances, like causing serious bodily injury or using a deadly weapon, and is treated as a more serious indictable offense.
