Assault and Battery

Assault and Battery Lawyer in Philadelphia

If you have been accused of Assault and Battery in Pennsylvania, you are facing a serious criminal defense which requires you to take immediate action, in order to best protect your rights. While there are many different types of assault related crimes, they all have one thing in common: a conviction can ruin both your personal and professional lives.

To understand the charges against you, it is important to recognize that the common meanings of Assault and Battery are somewhat different in Pennsylvania. While, in most states, assault is a crime for causing an individual apprehension or concern regarding a potential forthcoming physical injury, and battery is the crime for actually causing physical harm, they are merged in Pennsylvania. In Pennsylvania, a charge of assault can be levied for either causing someone physical injury, attempting to cause injury, or putting them in fear of such injury.

Consequently, a charge of assault can range drastically in both scope and consequence. Counsel will help you to both understand the charges against you, as well as how to contest the charges.
