Effective Defense Against Assault Charges

If you are facing charges or allegations of assault, we believe you deserve the opportunity to tell your side of the story. Our firm provides experienced and qualified defense counsel to individuals facing these serious charges in Washington, D.C., and Maryland. When you turn to the Law Office of Michael S. Rothman, you will receive honest counsel regarding your legal options and a tenacious defense of your interests.


Assault charges can arise out of various situations that may happen either in a private setting or in public. When investigating allegations of assault, law enforcement may not report the incident correctly or may make assumptions about the situation that can have a negative impact on you. Our defense attorney will thoroughly investigate your situation and develop a defense plan that allows you to effectively confront any criminal charges.

We Work To Protect Your Freedom And Interests

In most situations, the definition of assault is the attempt to harm another person through physical contact or by threatening physical harm to another person. In many cases, these allegations come from situations in which you were defending yourself or attempting to help another person.


We understand that situations involving an alleged assault can be complex. Our attorney works to investigate what happened and diligently prepare a defense that could undermine the case against you. Proving assault is not always easy — the prosecution must have evidence of a criminal act and the intent to harm. We will fight to help you avoid a conviction and any consequences that will have a long-term impact on your life.

Making Sure You Get To Tell Your Side Of The Story

The assault charges against you could be the result of self-defense, defense of another person or a misunderstanding. We make sure you get to tell your side of the story, and we help you mount a strong defense against any criminal charges.
