Assault & Battery Lawyers
Effectively Defending You against These Serious Charges
Although these two terms are generally used interchangeably, “assault” and “battery” have different definitions. Assault occurs when a person intentionally acts in a way so as to cause apprehension or fear of unwanted, offensive, or harmful contact. Even if no physical contact occurred, a defendant can still be charged with assault if the plaintiff felt fear of imminent harm. Battery occurs when a defendant makes physical contact with a person without his or her consent, thereby causing offense or harm.
The penalties for these types of crimes are often harsh and include expensive fines, a felony conviction, mandatory community service, and extensive jail or prison time. You need a skilled and experienced assault and battery lawyer to fight the charges against you. At Mansour Law, we have years of experience with successfully resolving these types of crimes and an in-depth understanding of this practice area, as a result.
