Daniel Cotrich was wrongfully charged with Assault in the 3rd Degree, a class A misdemeanor.
When I heard the details of the case, I knew my client was innocent. From my experience in criminal law, I knew that by gathering the evidence and presenting the facts of the case, we would be able to vindicate him against this false accusation. Cotrich worked in a Verizon Wireless store. He got into a heated argument with a co-worker and the co-worker pushed him. My client defended himself and punched him in the nose, breaking it. The coworker then pressed charges for assault. My client was vindicated when we showed the court that he acted in self defense.
As a Suffolk County assault lawyer, I see cases like this all the time. Just because you act appropriately and within the bounds of the law doesn’t mean someone like my client’s accuser won’t come after you. It takes skill and experience to defend against serious charges like this. We want to show the court that you cannot possibly be guilty of the crime and that means I need to take extra care to gather evidence and present it properly.
Sometimes, these types of cases can result in an unfavorable verdict if they are not handled with the care they need. Would you trust an inexperienced attorney if you were charged with something so serious and so brazenly false? We’ve all seen the headlines and we know that sometimes in this country, justice isn’t served. Today was not one of those days. This case is a great example of how a Suffolk county assault lawyer can fight for you and win. Not all defenses are created equal and not all attorneys are up to the challenge of a case like this. When it comes to your verdict, you need someone you can trust.
