Bakersfield Assault & Battery Attorney
We Relentlessly Challenge the Allegations Against You
Assault is sometimes referred to as attempted battery because it is an
attempt to injure another person; however, no physical contact has to
actually be made for a person to be charged with and convicted of assault.
Battery, on the other hand, involves willful and unlawful contact that
is harmful and / or offensive.
In the state of California, prosecutors stop at nothing to convict an individual
who has been accused of committing a violent crime such as battery. You
must remember that just because you have been arrested for assault or
battery does not mean that you will be convicted of the crime. To ensure
that your rights are protected to the fullest degree of the law, call
our defense lawyers at 661-322-5833.
We are particularly adept at dismantling the prosecution's case and
proving an element of doubt by addressing the following defenses, for example:
- The alleged crime was not a crime because you were acting in self defense
- The alleged crime was not committed by you, and you were arrested due to
- The alleged crime did not involve a weapon
- The allegations against you are false or fraudulent
By tearing a hole in the prosecutors' case, we can call the case created
against you into question. Any fraction of doubt can further lead to helping
your charges get reduced or dismissed, and thereby, clearing your name
of any alleged crime. When you can understand that there may be several
defenses available for your particular circumstances, your case can be
much less frightening and much more hopeful!
