Defending Criminal Harassment Charges
Finding the best defense against a criminal harassment charge largely depends on the circumstances of the offense. Harassment is a crime that involves targeting, tormenting, or terrorizing someone. This type of action creates fear in the victim. The complainant could fear for their safety or the safety of their family or property. To defend this charge, you need to prove that the complainant’s fear was unreasonable. Whether you’re responsible for harassment or not, the prosecuting lawyer will argue that you are guilty to convict you. But when representing you in criminal harassment charges, we gather enough evidence to create a reasonable doubt and make the case go your way.
If you’re facing criminal charges, we will vigorously defend you. As an experienced criminal defense law firm, we have skills and extensive courtroom experience.

Standard charges of criminal harassment include repeatedly following a person or communicating with someone repeatedly, directly or indirectly. Irrespective of the type of charges, we can raise a reasonable doubt about the offense to prove that the accused is not guilty. Criminal Harassment charges result from behavior or action that makes the complainant feel threatened or intimidated. This can be due to being watched, followed, stalked, or contacted. Whether the contact is direct or indirect, the charges could have serious consequences. If police arrest you, make sure you do not answer their questions. You also have the right not to provide your phone or computer to the police unless served with a warrant.
