5-Star Ranked, Oakland Assault Defense Super Lawyers

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 one of our skilled Oakland assault & battery attorneys for the best defense possible. This will ensure that all of the aspects of the case are explored and gives you the best chance of a favorable outcome.
