Assault – Family Violence

title
title

An assault can be as simple as spitting on someone and as extreme as beating them with a bat or worse. The punishment ranges increase dependent upon the severity of the action. Gone are the days where you could settle a dispute with a fistfight and shake hands later. If any form of aggression, even certain threats thereof, constitute a “touching” that is unwanted or uninvited, you are subject to having assault charges filed against you. Lloyd Law Firm has represented many individuals who have argued “self-defense” and this is a viable option should it be true in your case. Additionally, if the persons involved in the struggle are related or are members of the same household, the case may be considered family violence, which again enhances the possible punishment range. Most people generally need some counseling and assistance in dealing with anger issues when confronted with these charges, and our goal is to aid in the solution, rather than vilify the victim. Let Lloyd Law Firm calm the situation down.
