Assault & Battery

Assault charges can arise under a wide variety of circumstances, ranging from bar fights to assaults involving a deadly weapon or a car.

If you want to fight the assault charge because you are innocent or feel you have a good defense, you can be assured that as your lawyer I will do everything in my power to obtain successful results on your behalf.

Violent Crimes and California’s Three Strikes Law

While any criminal conviction can result in jail time, probation, and/or fines, some assault and battery convictions can apply to California’s Three Strikes Law and can result in lengthy sentences even on for a first offense. In addition, even a ‘minor’ assault conviction can have a significant effect on your future employment prospects and on your immigration status if you are not a U.S. citizen. If you already have two strikes against you, it is possible to spend the rest of your life in prison if you are convicted of a third felony offense.
