Aggravated Assault Lawyers in Teaneck, NJ
The aggravated assault statute in New Jersey is very complicated and can be confusing at times. Aggravated assault can be either a second, third or fourth degree felony, which could make the difference between ten years in a New Jersey State Prison and probation.
