Defending Against Assault And Battery Charges

Criminal charges related to assault and battery can arise from a variety of situations and circumstances.

We understand that the circumstances that precede these types of charges are often complex and emotionally charged. There are always two sides to every story, and we are committed to ensuring that your side of the story is told and understood.

Assault Charges Carry Hefty Criminal Penalties

In Colorado, assault charges are classified as first, second or third degree and several factors are taken into account when determining what charges to file, including:

  • If there was intent to harm
  • Whether a weapon was used
  • The degree and severity of injury
  • If the injured party was a law enforcement or other public official

Individuals who are convicted of misdemeanor or felony assault charges face imprisonment, and thousands of dollars in fines. Additionally, having a criminal record can make it difficult to find and keep a job, obtain a loan, and rent an apartment or home.
