Simple Assault vs. Aggravated Assault
Assault charges can stem from bar fights, workplace disputes, conflicts at family events and more. They can be associated with other criminal matters such as theft or robbery.
Simple assault is a misdemeanor. It is the most common assault charge. Aggravated assault is less common, but much more serious. Charges of aggravated assault are associated with serious bodily injury to the victim or assault with a weapon. There is also a charge of vehicular assault, which is often associated with car accidents caused by drunk drivers. No matter what charge you are faced with, we can defend you.
Defending Against Assault Charges
Strong defense in an assault case requires all of the facts. We will need to know who started it. We will need to know who the primary aggressor was. We will need to know if you were taunted or provoked into the fight. All of these details can play a major role in the strategy we use to defend you, so we will take great care to gather all information from police reports and witnesses. We will move fast in order to tell your side of the story and protect your rights.
