Baldwin County | Mobile County Assault Charge Attorney


The severity of the assault charges you face depends upon the circumstances surrounding your arrest. Being charged with an assault charge may not accurately reflect what really happened and you may have actually been the victim rather than the aggressor. Often times the "victim" in the assault charges is nothing more than the person who calls the police first after a fight. Careful consultation with a skilled lawyer can greatly improve your chances for a more favorable outcome. At the Law Office of John W. Cowling, we provide aggressive representation of clients charged with crimes 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. However, the law takes a very harsh view toward these types of scenarios. In fact, the consequences of assault charges are frequently beyond what most average people that get caught up in these situations would expect. Assault charges can lead to fines, prison sentences, restraining orders and damaged reputations.

Mr. Cowling will conduct a thorough investigation to determine what really took place, including reviewing police reports and talking to all witnesses. While we will consider whether plea negotiations 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. Even if you feel like your actions were justified, being charged with assault is a serious matter you should not take lightly. Schedule an appointment with dedicated Baldwin County criminal defense attorney John W. Cowling to discuss your rights.
