Aggressively Defending Clients in Aggravated Assault and Battery Cases

Florida Battery Attorney

The police came to your home with guns drawn, knocking on doors until they found you. You’re sitting in jail now and have been charged for aggravated assault or battery- which means that this is not just a typical case of getting into trouble; it could be serious business!  The justice system isn’t always fair but Attorney Mitchell Polay wants nothing more than give each person who walks through his door all the legal protection he needs against charges like these so don’t hesitate any longer before contacting one skilled criminal defense attorney who knows exactly what they are doing when facing off against an aggressive prosecution team.

Protecting You in Criminal Court


Defense Against Battery Charges

When you work with Mitch Polay, he will thoroughly review and investigate your charges to identify all possible defenses that may be available to you.  Under Florida’s “Stand Your Ground Law,” individuals have the right to use force to protect themselves, their property and other people from aggressors.  Moreover, unlike earlier self-defense laws, which required an individual to attempt to retreat before using force, the Stand Your Ground Law does not have a retreat requirement and individuals are justified in using deadly force if they have a reasonable belief that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death, great bodily harm or the commission of a forcible felony.   In addition to self-defense under the Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law, other defenses may be available to you, including that the threat was conditional, the fear was unreasonable in an assault case, that the “victim’ consented to the contact or you lacked sufficient intent in a battery case.

“Liberty is the right to do what the law permits.”
