Detroit Assault & Criminal Lawyer

For many people that have gotten into a yelling match or a fistfight, they never suspected to be arrested for assault and/or assault and battery.  There are many misconceptions about what constitutes assault and battery.  But what is clear in any type of assault case is the need for an experienced Detroit Criminal Lawyer to defend the case.

In Detroit, assault is considered any type of act where one person inflicts the fear of being harmed in another person.  If the alleged offender has a weapon or any type of physical object that can be used as a weapon, they can be charged with assault with a deadly weapon. And if the alleged offender ever touches the alleged victim, this is considered battery, and will likely result in an assault & battery charge.

A case of simple assault will probably receive a period of probation, a fine, and perhaps community service, or a requirement to attend anger management classes. However, crimes with a greater degree of violence, especially those that result in the serious injury of others or damage to property will be more severely punished under the law.

Our law firm has many years of experience representing clients accused of all types of violent crimes. The first step in any case of assault and battery is to evaluate all of the details. Evidence such as police reports, witnesses, and visible injuries are all pieces of the prosecution puzzle. As your defense team, we will thoroughly review each piece of evidence to find any holes or inconsistencies in the prosecution’s case.
