The Most Common Charge — Assault

One of the most common and heavily prosecuted violent crimes is assault.

Assault charges range from Class B misdemeanors to First Degree felonies.  Our Firm focusses primarily on misdemeanor assaults, as well as some felony assaults (depending on the severity of the alleged injury).

Assault charges may result if you intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly cause bodily injury to another (including injury to your spouse).  You may also be charged with assault by intentionally or knowingly threatening another with bodily injury (including injury to your spouse), or intentionally or knowingly causing physical contact with another when such contact is deemed offensive or provocative.

If the alleged assault causes serious bodily injury or you use or exhibit a deadly weapon during the commission of the assault, you could be facing serious felony charges.

If you have been charged with a violent crime, please call our Firm at 281-888-5581.  We will fully investigate the charge against you, interview witnesses, and collect invaluable date and evidence on your behalf.  Start defending yourself now.
