Southern California Assault Defense Attorney

Aside from very common charges such as driving with a suspended license or DUI, assault charges are the 3rd most common charge and reason for arrest in California.

Simple Assault

Assault is the “threat to strike” or “attempt to strike” another person. Even if you were unsuccessful and did not successfully strike another person you can still be charged and arrested for assault – so long they were aware or testify that you had intended to strike them. Assault charges do not require the actual, physical touching of another person.

Aggravated Assault

Aggravated assault is an actual attack while in the commission of another crime. A common example of “aggravated assault” would be pushing, hitting, or striking a person while robbing them. Assault and aggravated assault often end with criminal charges and victims will sometimes file a civil lawsuit to collect damages in excess of any victim restitution that the court might order.

Assault charges vary widely in Southern California and, for that matter, anywhere in the State of California, but they all have one thing in common: Assault Charges require an effective criminal defense because every type of assault conviction counts as a strike under the California three strikes rule.

How to win an Assault Case in Southern California

We know that the key to winning assault cases is to quickly find and interview relevant witnesses. Often, these witnesses contradict the individual claiming to be the “victim” of the assault and this information can help us gather evidence that supports these witness statements. We have highly respected investigators who can help us establish defenses in Southern California area assault cases, including claims of self-defense and that you were the person attacked first.

To help get this awful situation behind you, we will use our findings to petition for the charges to be dismissed or reduced. This uncovered evidence will also be used to help obtain a not-guilty verdict at trial should it ever go that far. If the state has a slam-dunk case we can negotiate with the prosecutor for an acceptable plea bargain or in our argument to the judge for a fair sentence.

We are here to prevent a conviction from being added to your record. If you have been charged with assault, contact us now to schedule a free consultation.
