Assault Charges

Assault Charges

Experienced Denver Criminal Defense Attorney

Fights within a family, fights in a parking lot, slapping someone in a bar, intentionally hitting a person with your car – these are all examples of assault and battery. Assault also includes an element of threat, which can be an outright threat or an implied threat.

The seriousness of the charges you face – whether it will be a misdemeanor or felony assault – will depend on the nature and extent of injuries, and whether a weapon was used. Even a foot can be considered a deadly weapon so you could potentially be facing a felony charge for assault with a deadly weapon, which carries a mandatory prison sentence if you are convicted.

I began my career in the Public Defender’s office, working hard to ensure my clients received the strongest possible defense in assault and domestic violence cases. I have handled thousands of criminal trials.
