Assault Defense

Assault Defense Specialists

If you  are arrested for assault behavior whether it is a misdemeanor matter of little significance or whether it is a homicide, resisting arrest,  obstructing  an officer, or any other type of assaultive behavior, the state will use all  of its resources to allegedly protect victims, spouses, cohabitants, and others.

If arrested for many of these types of violations, particularly spousal or cohabitant assault, you  may find  yourself looking at $250,000 bail, prison, jail,  lengthy and unbearable rehabilitation programs, probation officers, social workers, and other “reformers” running your life and searching you and your home at their discretion without warning or prior notification.

Even if you are not incarcerated, you  may be  placed on  probation or “diversion” or ordered by the court to attend a spousal abuse or anger management program. Further, you could be subject to:

  • Random search of your person, home or vehicle without any probable cause or advance notice. 
  • Seizure of your properties.
  • Chemical tests of blood, urine or breath ordered by any police officer, probation officer or social worker.
  • Lengthy programs and numerous court appearance.
  • Loss of your right to possess or drink alcohol.
  • Loss of your right to possess or use firearms.
  • Loss of your right to vote.

For many offenses, you will not be able to legally purchase a firearm for 10 years in California, and may be precluded from doing so for life by the federal government. Expungement or completion of probation will not necessarily change any of this.

You need an attorney to protect you from

  • Incarceration in jail or prison
  • Probation or parole
  • Loss of voter rights
  • Loss of right to privacy
  • Loss of right to bear arms
