If you were involved in an altercation and took steps to defend yourself, don’t be surprised if you find yourself charged with assault. In New York, who gets arrested for assault often depends on who got the better of the fight or who contacted the police first. Law enforcement officers may take you into custody first and ask questions later. Simple statements you make in your defense can be twisted and used against you in a criminal trial. You want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your constitutional rights. We can help.

At the Law Offices of David W. Haber, in Mineola, New York, we bring more than 12 years of legal experience to individuals throughout Long Island and the surrounding communities. A former assistant district attorney in Nassau County, Mr. Haber understands how prosecutors evaluate, prepare and present criminal cases. We can anticipate the strategies and tactics they will employ, and help you take proactive steps to protect your reputation, your freedom and your future.

We know that the legal process in general, and the criminal justice system in particular, can be intimidating and confusing. When you hire us to defend you, you will always work directly with attorney Haber, never with a paralegal or an associate. We will carefully explain the law and the legal process, as well as your rights and options, so that you can make good decisions.

We offer a free initial consultation to every client. To arrange a private meeting with an experienced New York criminal defense lawyer, contact our office by e-mail or call us at 516-873-1008.

Our Criminal Assault Defense Practice

We aggressively defend people who face criminal assault charges, handling cases involving accusations of:

  • Assault in the first degree, second degree or third degree
  • Gang Assault in the fist degree or second degree
  • Aggravated assault on a police or law enforcement officer
  • Aggravated assault using a motor vehicle
  • Assault with a deadly weapon

We will defend you against charges stemming from any altercation, from a bar fight to a gang-related assault. We take cases involving the use of any type of weapon, from feet or fists to guns, baseball bats, knives or even a car.

When you hire us to defend you against an assault charge, we will fully investigate the evidence in your case, including the actions of police and law enforcement officers. In addition, we will speak to your witnesses and attempt to locate other witnesses. We will verify that there was probable cause to make any search or seizure, and that you were notified of your Miranda rights if interrogated while in custody.
