specializing in assault & battery cases

There is often a lot of confusion surrounding a charge of assault and/or battery. While many people are charged with both, the truth is that these are two separate charges. Assault is defined as an unlawful attempt with ability to commit violence on a person. Battery, on the other hand, is defined as the unlawful use of force upon a person. While they are very similar in their definitions, there are slight yet distinct differences.

When either of these offenses is committed against specific people such as law enforcement officers, a domestic partner including spouses or roommates, the penalty phase of the legal process can be especially harsh. In addition, if either crime is committed when a weapon other than a hand or fist is present, the consequences can be dire.

If you have been charged and arrested for either assault, battery or both, it is vitally important to contact a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. This will ensure that all of the aspects of the case are explored and gives you the best chance of a favorable outcome. Contact the criminal defense experts at Lamano Law Offices today and discuss your case with an experienced criminal defense attorney.
