St. Cloud Assault Lawyer

Stearns County Domestic Assault Attorney

In Minnesota, assault and domestic assault charges are taken very seriously. If you have been charged with one of these crimes, it is important to understand that a conviction could have a major impact on your life. You can take steps to limit the damage, starting with enlisting the law firm of Michael L. Samuelson. We have more than 30 years of experience that we will put to work for you.

Assault Charges

Assault charges range from fifth-degree assault to first-degree assault, depending on the severity of the injuries involved and other factors. We defend against all of them, including the lesser charge of disorderly conduct.

These charges typically result from bar fights of some sort. Alcohol is often a factor. When you choose our law firm, you will be represented personally by attorney Michael L. Samuelson, who is a former prosecutor. He knows firsthand the challenges that prosecutors face in these cases, which include sorting out a mess of intoxicated people, determining who hit who and who attacked first. This background allows him to spot the weaknesses in the prosecutor's case and attack it as part of a strong defense strategy.

Domestic Assault Charges

Domestic assault, also referred to as domestic violence, is when the people involved in the dispute are also involved in some sort of domestic relationship. That could mean a husband and wife relationship, a boyfriend and girlfriend relationship, a parent and child relationship or even a roommate relationship.

One consequence of a conviction for domestic assault is the loss of the right to own or possess firearms. This is true no matter how minor the incident may have been.

These charges are often accompanied by charges like:

  • Interference with a 911 call
  • Terroristic threats
  • Violation of a restraining order

We have the experience to defend against domestic assault and all related charges. Our goal is to fight to help you limit the consequences of these serious charges.
