Me in my female friend was coming from the movies on mothers day on our way back topick up her kids when we seen my ex standing on the bus stop. She started walking towards the car to fight my new friend over a previous incident. I immediately grabbed her because she kept coming towards my friend. She hit me a few times until we both fell and when we got up, my head was busted and her face was busted. I called the police and filed a report down the station, and come to find out she done the same. Whats the best way I can handle this situation?

If the police charge you, you will need counsel. It will likely be a simple assault or aggravateed assault charge. Both of you have potential civil claims against each other, too, which can be filed in the district or circuit courts. But that would depend entirely on a lawyer taking the case on contingency, which is rare where the other side may not have insurance or their is a question about whether you acted reasonably in the situation, as here.
An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate the prosecution's case, any defenses that you might have, and any plea offer that might be made, so that you can decide whether to go to trial. Consider seeking a confidential consultation.
