Fight Against Assault Charges

Virginia laws pertaining to assault are complex because there are many different types of assaults defined in the laws.

Understanding Complex Statutes

There are Virginia statutes that cover every type of assault imaginable. As an experienced criminal defense attorney, I regularly represent individuals charged with many types of assault. I can help you if you are charged with:

  • Shooting
  • Stabbing and the intent to maim
  • Injury to law enforcement officers or rescue workers
  • Aggravated malicious wounding
  • Assault for driving or operating a watercraft while under the influence
  • Using weapons while committing a felony
  • Domestic violence charges
  • Other assault charges not listed here

Self-Defense As A Valid Defense

As an established attorney who understands assault laws, I thoroughly investigate every assault and battery case. I understand that each case has a unique set of characteristics requiring a personalized and appropriate defense. As cases often involve multiple parties, the wrongdoer who started a fight may not be the person charged. Self-defense can often be raised as a defense in violent crime cases. Regardless of what is charged, it’s important that if you have been charged you have an attorney who is committed to your case and who can effectively tell your story.

Making Certain Your Rights Are Defended

As your lawyer I will defend you in court and make certain that your rights are not violated. I bring over 15 years of hard-earned criminal defense experience in my representation of you. Not only have I represented individuals charged with assault, but I also thoroughly understand the appropriate procedures that need to be followed before a conviction and sentencing can be set.
