The Aggressive Defense of Assault and Battery Charges

In Pennsylvania, assault and battery are separate offenses, and can be prosecuted as either a felony or a misdemeanor, based on a number of factors, including the severity of the attack and whether there is any prior history of assault, battery or abuse. We handle the defense of all types of violent crimes, including

  • Simple assault. We will defend you if you have been charged with assault, which is nothing more than the threat of violence to another person. You can be charged with assault even if you didn’t touch the other person.
  • Simple battery. A charge of battery requires that you offensively touch another person with the intent to cause injury.
  • Aggravated assault or battery. This offense involves the attempt to cause severe harm or the use of a deadly weapon.

When you hire us to defend you on an assault or battery charge, we will take the time to thoroughly investigate your case, so that we fully understand the facts and circumstances. We will examine whether your constitutional rights were violated by any unreasonable search or seizure, and will look for evidence of self-defense, defense of others or of consent.
