Battery, disorderly conduct, recklessly endangering safety, violent crime charges?

Call criminal defense firm Meyer Van Severen, S.C.  at (414) 270-0202 to discuss these and all criminal charges.

Disorderly conduct and battery are two of the most common misdemeanor crimes charged after fights, arguments, and violent altercations.  In certain circumstances, such as when a bone, nose, or tooth is broken, the prosecutor will charge the defendant with a felony substantial battery.  Another version of felony battery is called aggravated battery.

Rarely are criminal situations black and white.  Often individuals are provoked, acting in self-defense, or responding out of fear.  Our criminal defense lawyers will take the time to learn the facts of your case.  When it comes time, we will argue the relevant facts to the judge, the jury, and the prosecutor.  Our criminal attorneys believe our defense strategies are effective when facing a criminal conviction.

Criminal attorneys Meyer and Van Severen have experience defending many different violent crimes.  We have won cases involving these crimes before.  Whether you’re seeking dismissal of charges, reductions in charges, avoidance of jail/prison, or avoiding a criminal record, the criminal lawyers at Meyer Van Severen, S.C. will fight for your rights.
