Types of Assault Charges
People charged with assault may be in the criminal justice system for the first time. It can be an overwhelming experience unless you have an attorney acting as your advocate. We can defend people accused of assault in cases involving:
- Domestic violence
- Bar fights
- Assault of a police officer
- Aggravated assault
- Sexual assault
When a gun or other weapon is used during an assault, the severity of the penalties increases. If you have been charged with a gun crime in addition to assault, it is important to have a skilled defense attorney working for you.
