We will listen to your explanation of the incident and review the police reports and any evidence against you. Based on the specifics of your situation, we will develop a strategy for defending you. Defenses to assault can include:

  • Justification: Some assaults are justified. If you acted in self-defense or in order to protect another person, your actions may have been justified.
  • Identity: Some assault charges are based on mistaken identity. The prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it was you who committed the assault.
  • Consent: We may be able to show that you and the other party were engaging in consensual behavior.

Assault is classified as a violent crime. As such, there are more severe guidelines for punishing those convicted of serious assaults. That is all the more reason to speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer about your case.

An assault charge can become more serious, depending on the specifics of your case. If you used a weapon or uttered racial slurs during the assault, for example, you could face serious punishment.
