The Aftermath Of The Fight

When police are called to a scene where people are fighting, they must then determine what occurred, who started it and who, if anyone, should be charged with a crime.

Many times, people are arrested when they were acting in self-defense or were victims of the assault. There are many errors police can make at the time of arrest, which attorney Stephen C. Brown is skilled at identifying and then using that error to prevent a conviction for an offense that can have unforeseen consequences.

Don't talk to police. Talk to attorney Stephen C. Brown before you give a statement.

Refrain from discussing matters with police if you may have criminal liability exposure.

If you think you may be charged with a criminal offense, exercise your right to remain silent until you have an opportunity to speak with attorney Brown.

We take a personalized approach. Our firm is known throughout New Hampshire for two things: our skill in arguing cases and the personal approach we take in getting to know clients, discovering who they are, apart from the charges against them and how they ended up in the criminal justice system.

For instance, if a judge or jurors think you're just a thug in a fight, they may not be disposed to mercy or give you much credibility. If they understand that you are a history major who drank too much following finals or just lost a friend or parent and acted unwisely and uncharacteristically, they are more likely to give more credibility to your defense and be more lenient.
