Criminal Defense Attorney

While most people are familiar with the term "assault and battery", these are actually two separate crimes. Assault occurs when an action or a threat places someone in imminent fear of a non-consensual touching. Assault does not involve physical contact. Defense of a criminal assault charge sometimes include self-defense, defense of others, and defense of property.

Battery can be defined as an intentional act of harmful or offensive touching of someone without permission. Accidental contact, no matter how severe, is not considered battery. To be charged with battery, the person who was physically harmed does not have to require medical treatment.


As a law firm providing experienced assault and battery legal services, we are committed to protecting the legal rights of each and every client, while always striving to provide the highest standard of legal representation.

Assault and battery crimes are often associated with:

  • An escalation of a verbal argument;
  • A Personal, Social or Professional Dispute or Feud;
  • Domestic Disputes;
  • Actions during crimes of opportunity in conjunction with other crimes such as theft, rape, or other serious crimes.

There are also varying degrees of assault and battery crimes based on the circumstances and the severity of injuries which are caused. For example, weapons can elevate the severity of the offense. In some instances, the individual who was defending himself, another person, or property finds himself facing assault or battery charges. In this situation, our duty is to give you a voice in an effort to have the charges dropped, reduced and when necessary, to prove your innocence.
