        Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

Justin was diligent, tenacious, professional, and clearly dedicated to assisting me, all of which led to a very positive outcome. I was very impressed with his work and I highly recommend his office.

        Assault is an extremely serious charge in New York State, with penalties that can include big fines and jail time. If you’ve been arrested for or charged with assault, you need help right away from an experienced assault lawyer. The attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer are some of the most experienced attorneys you’ll find in New York.

        When it comes to putting on a strong defense in a criminal case, especially where violence is alleged, you want a team that knows and understands the whole process. At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, we have been practicing law for decades, and spent many years as prosecutors – so we know how an assault case is built, what evidence the other side is likely to rely on, how witness testimony can help or hurt you, and can give you the most honest, realistic understanding of your situation you’ll find.

        In any court case, the most important piece is the evidence. Police and prosecutors will be compiling evidence against you – witness statements, medical records, photographs of injuries, and whatever else they think they can use to paint the least flattering picture of you and the events surrounding your case.

        Former Prosecutors Providing Strong Defense Against Assault Charges

        When you work with Friedman & Ranzenhofer, you can count on us to approach every piece of evidence with the same care that the prosecution does. In addition, we build our own case, not only challenging witness statements, but searching for those who have another perspective, and countering medical testimony with any facts that don’t fit nicely into the prosecution’s narrative.

        We know how your case has been put together, and we are some of Buffalo’s most trusted attorneys because of our broad experience.

        Our Buffalo Assault Lawyers Give You Options

        While our attorneys are extremely experienced at trial and have a record of success we’re very proud of, for some clients, a trial isn’t their preferred approach. In that case, we protect your rights and fight for a negotiated outcome that works for you and your family. Whatever your particular circumstances, the buffalo assault lawyers at Friedman & Ranzenhofer are there for you, and will do everything we can to effectively achieve a resolution to your case that’s best for you.

        Assault is a very serious charge that can carry heavy penalties. Don’t gamble with your future when it comes to dealing with Buffalo criminal court. Public defenders may seem like a good idea at the time, but the truth is that your public defender is most likely fresh out of law school and eager to rack up some experience in criminal court. Because of the hectic workload, public defenders often try to get you to take the first plea deal offered by the prosecutors, and prosecutors know it.
