Glendale & Los Angeles Assault Defense Attorneys

Assault Defense Attorney

Understanding Assault and How an Assault Charge Can Affect You

If you’re being investigated for assault, it’s important to understand specifically what can happen to you. In the context of criminal law, the definition of assault is an attempt to cause physical injury to or offensive towards another party (an attempt to commit battery). Assault is a very serious crime, and can mean a loss of your freedom. If you are currently being investigated or have actually already been charged with assault, it is in your best interest to contact a qualified attorney immediately.

In California, there are two main types of assault: the standard “Assault” (California Penal Code Section 240 PC) and also “Assault with a Deadly Weapon” or “ADW” (California Penal Code Section 245(a)(1) PC). These can result in a misdemeanor or felony charge. Regardless of the specific type of charge, either can result in fines, the compulsion to pay restitution to the victim, mandatory counseling, a mark on your criminal record, parole, jail, or prison. Such as causing you to lose employment, causing your right to possess a firearm to be taken away, and sometimes even a revocation of your license to drive (if the assault involved a motor vehicle).
