Assault and Other Violent Crimes Have Serious Ramifications

Have you been charged with a violent crime? You are probably aware that you are facing a serious charge, but you may not completely understand the impact a conviction could have on your life.

Defense Against Assault Charges

There are three types of assault charges: simple assault, aggravated assault and assault with a deadly weapon. We can defend against all of them.

Simple assault may involve pushing and shoving. Injuries, if any, are minor. Aggravated assault, known as felony assault in Pennsylvania, is charged typically when there are serious injuries. Assault with a deadly weapon, of course, is any assault using a gun, knife, bat or any sort of blunt instrument. A motor vehicle may be considered a deadly weapon.
