Baldwin County | Mobile Assault and Battery Attorney


The severity of the assault charges you face depends upon the circumstances surrounding your arrest. Unfortunately, the actual assault charges filed may not accurately reflect what really happened. Careful consultation with a skilled Baldwin County assault and battery lawyer can greatly improve your chances for a more favorable outcome. At the Law Office of John W. Cowling, we provide aggressive criminal defense representation of clients throughout Alabama including those charged with assault and battery.

No one wants to believe that a small misunderstanding that ends in a drunken shoving match justifies assault charges or that a heated argument at home can result in allegations of domestic violence. Regardless of how you see it, the law takes a very harsh view toward these types of scenarios. In fact, the consequences of assault charges are frequently beyond what most people would expect. Assault charges can lead to hefty fines, prison sentences, restraining orders, damaged reputations, and even more serious charges if a gun is involved.

Our assault and battery lawyers conduct a thorough investigation to determine what really took place; we review police reports and talk to all witnesses. While we will certainly consider plea negotiations that are in your interest, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial if that is the best way to protect your rights and your freedom. Justified or not, being charged with assault is a serious matter you should not take lightly.
