Assault and Battery

San Diego Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you are facing assault and battery charges, or criminal allegations for any other type of violent crime, time is of the essence.

You need a competent criminal defense lawyer on your side to protect your constitutional rights and help you avoid a conviction and serious criminal penalties.

If you or someone you know is facing assault and/or battery charges, I have the legal know-how and the resources to properly address the matter and work to defend your rights immediately. I welcome you to contact my firm for a free consultation regarding your case.

About Assault and Battery Charges in San Diego, California

Assault and battery are actually two separate criminal offenses, both violent crimes that involve an attempt or act of violence against another person. Assault is defined as the attempt or threat of violent injury on another, with an apparent ability to carry out the threat and therefore to put the victim in reasonable fear of his or her safety. Battery is defined as the act of violence itself, such as hitting, striking or touching another person against their will. Assault and battery charges are often grouped together in criminal cases, as the attempt and the act may be prosecuted.

With the proper criminal defense counsel, you have the opportunity to fight your San Diego assault and battery charges. Do not let law enforcement violate your rights, and do not allow yourself to face a criminal conviction for an offense you did not commit.
