Assault And Battery

Simply put, assault can include unwanted or threatening touch or threat of touch, or a show of violence. There are many different assault crime variations. I represent clients in the criminal courts of Forsyth, Davidson and Davie counties in a range of assault cases:

  • Misdemeanor assault charges: The penalties for misdemeanor assault become increasingly severe when certain aggravating factors exist, including the use of a deadly weapon, an under 18 or female victim, and if the victim was seriously hurt.
  • Felony assault: Assault inflicting serious bodily injury and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill are two common felony assault charges. Obviously, a felony conviction could have catastrophic consequences, including years' imprisonment and a felony conviction on your permanent record.
