Defend yourself Against Aggravated Assault Charges

If you have been accused of assault, it is important to understand the charges against you and the potential penalties you will face if you are convicted. When you have aggravated assault charges against you, working with an experienced defense attorney is imperative.

The lawyers here at DeGrado Halkovich, LLC can help you understand your rights and defend you strategically against charges such as;

  • Simple assault – Usually charged in the third or fourth degrees, depending on a number of factors, where bodily injury is purposely inflicted on another person.
  • Attempted assault – Charged when a person is considered to have intended bodily injury.
  • Harassment – A less serious charge than simple assault, harassment is a misdemeanor offense.
  • Felony, aggravated or negligent assault – Charged when the alleged assault involves a police officer or other government, judicial, public service or educational employee, involves the use of a weapon or is considered more serious for other reasons.
  • Assault by auto – Also known as vehicular assault, this is charged if a person in control of an automobile accident causes an accident that results in injury.

In some cases, you may be able to get an assault charge or conviction expunged from your record, which can help with your career and educational goals in the future. Our law firm has significant experience in record clearing and can provide you with the information and representation needed to help you start with a clean slate again.
