Fresno Assault Lawyer 

Defending Clients Charged With Assault & Battery in Fresno County

Assault charges can stem from various incidents, from domestic disputes to altercations in bars, schools, or private homes. California law defines assault as any action likely to result in using force against another person. It is unnecessary to strike someone to be charged with assault or battery. The mere attempt to apply force to another person is sufficient enough for an assault charge. This broad definition of assault can lead to necessary criminal charges. 

If you face assault charges, it is essential to enlist the services of an experienced Fresno criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Conviction of assault can have serious consequences, not only a jail sentence or probation but also the long-term consequences of having a criminal conviction on your permanent record. Make sure to speak with the police before you speak with an attorney. Cooperation without legal counsel rarely results in any leniency. More often than not, it can hurt your case or even lead to additional charges.
