Assault Defense

An assault conviction can result in a significant prison sentence. If the court finds that the assault was committed with an illegal weapon, such as an unregistered firearm, the sentence and other penalties will be even greater. Because the consequences are significant, people charged with any type of assault should consult with a knowledgeable and experienced criminal defense attorney to realize the best possible outcome.
