Defending You Against Serious Assault Charges
Assault is a broad category of crimes that deal with physical violence or the threat of physical violence against another person. It is not necessary for an actual attack to take place in order for you to be charged with assault. Assault charges can result from any act that puts another person in fear of harmful physical contact. Depending on the severity of the offense, a conviction on these charges can carry some significant penalties, including fines and jail time.

Domestic Assault Legal Services
