Monique Samuels’ attorney is speaking out after Candiace Dillard filed a criminal complaint with the Montgomery County court in Maryland over a beat down that was filmed for The Real Housewives of Potomac.

The incident occurred on October 16 during a Real Housewives of Potomac cast event at a dinner party. Candiace Dillard threw a drink in Monique’s face during a heated argument — and Monique responded by grabbing Candiace by the hair and slamming her face on a table.

Monique Samuels was charged with second-degree assault — issued a summons —  and scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 23.

Now Monique Samuels’ attorney, A. Scott Bolden, has released a statement and asserts Candiace Dillard’s claims are “completely one-sided, inaccurate, and unwarranted.”

He insisted his client acted in defense against Dillard, whose “aggressive, belligerent and threatening behavior” he said has been documented on the Bravo reality show.

“If this event occurred during taping of the show, I am confident that the video will bear all of this out. My client has every right to file for a counter criminal summons, as well, and will consider doing so, while fully defending herself in this action that has been filed with the Court,” Bolden told PEOPLE. “Either way, I am confident that she will prevail on this matter. Going forward, we hope that Ms. Dillard seeks the help she needs to avoid creating these kinds of unsafe and unfortunate circumstances in and outside of the workplace.”
