Defense Strategies

Even if you inflicted bodily harm on another person, there are defense strategies to employ on your behalf. In certain circumstances a person has the right to defend him or herself, or another person, by inflicting force on another person. The Castle Doctrine allows people to use force to defend their homes or vehicles from an intruder.

Every case is different. Criminal defense attorney Al Messer will work with you personally to help you understand how the law applies in your situation, and to help you mount the most effective defense strategy.
