When police respond to calls involving people fighting, they usually arrest anyone involved. Even in cases where someone is simply defending themselves against an aggressor, it's not uncommon for police to arrest them too.

Before you talk to police, call the Shapiro Law Firm today at 800-554-5247. Our Collin County criminal defense attorneys will review and evaluate your case to determine how best to proceed to help you avoid further legal complications.
Defending You Against Charges of Assault
Regardless of whether a fight occurs in a bar, a parking lot or in your neighbor's front yard, people don't always know or see what caused it to happen in the first place. As a result, when the police arrive, those present may mistakenly blame you for starting it when you were only defending yourself. And, in many instances, police will arrest everyone involved and let the prosecutor sort it out later.
Reducing the Charges Against You
Investigating the circumstances around an alleged assault, collecting eyewitness statements and reviewing police reports, our criminal defense attorneys tell your side of the story. In explaining the circumstances surrounding your arrest, we may be able to persuade the court to reduce the charges against you. Depending on your criminal history, our criminal defense lawyers explore alternatives to jail and a permanent criminal record in exchange for community service and anger management counseling.
