Aggravated Assault vs. Simple Assault
Aggravated assault is defined as a reckless attack with intent to injure seriously someone (which may include the use of a weapon). Meanwhile, simple assault is defined as the threatening, attempted inflicting, or inflicting of less than serious bodily injury without the use of a deadly weapon. If you are being accused of either offense, you may be facing serious consequences. For instance, charges that include aggravated battery or aggravated child abuse may carry an extensive prison sentence. On the other hand, simple battery is considered a misdemeanor that may include a short prison sentence and a fine.

A violent crime conviction may haunt you for the rest of your life. It could effect your reputation, your social standing, and even put you behind bars for years. When faced with dire consequences, do not turn to anyone else, but our strong legal defense.

Without the help of an expert legal team, you may find yourself on the losing side of a life-changing conviction. Due to the sensitive nature of violent crimes, law enforcement and prosecution will pursue any case with aggressive intensity. Without a skilled attorney at your side, it will be very difficult to defend yourself. Your criminal record, livelihood, and freedom are at stake, so don’t take any chances and don’t wait to start acting now. If you fail to obtain the proper representation at the initial stages of a prosecution, it may prove to be damning to your case. We are here for you every step of the way to fight for your rights and demand your freedom.
