Family violence and assault accusations can be particularly harmful as society can start to view you as a violent person. Not only is your freedom on the line, but your personal life as well.

Assault charges arise when a confrontation becomes physical with another person. It is typical for the first person to call the police to be seen as the victim. In any assault case, we always investigate if the accused actually caused the injuries and if they were acting in self-defense. Learn more about how we fight assault charges on this page.
An assault can be enhanced to an aggravated assault if a person suffers serious bodily injury as a result of the encounter. You are entitled to defend yourself but can only use the amount of force that is reasonable to defend yourself. Learn how we fight aggravated assault charges here.
Aggravated Assault With a Deadly Weapon
If you are involved in a confrontation and you use or exhibit a deadly weapon during the commission of the assault, you can be charged with this offense.
