In assault and battery cases, the first person to speak with the police is generally assumed to be the victim. Yet all too often we’ve found through investigation that the alleged victim was actually the aggressor. These small wrinkles in the story are often the difference between convictions and acquittals. At CBS Law, we don’t just collect this evidence, we persuasively present it in court – that’s what sets us apart from the rest.

Self-Defense: The Right To Defend Yourself
In all circumstances, a person has the right to defend themself. No matter the size, age, sex, or strength of the aggressor, a person is legally allowed to protect themself against attack. In other words, actions taken in lawful self-defense are not a crime.
So what makes an action taken in self-defense legal? Here in California, the law lays out a 3-part test:
(1) did the person reasonably believe that they were in immediate danger of being touched or harmed;
(2) did the person reasonably believe that they needed to use force immediately to defend themself; and
(3) did the person use a reasonable amount of force to defend themself given the danger.
As you can imagine, a number of factors can come into play in such a situation. For example, prior violence or threats of violence by the aggressor, the history of the relationship between the parties, or even the aggressor’s mental state can tilt the balance between innocence and guilt. At CBS Law, we have the know-how and experience to expose false allegations and save client reputations. The sooner you call, the sooner we get to work.
