Don't face the penalties for assault alone!

In Michigan, there are varying degrees of assault based on how severe of an injury occurred. If there was no actual injury, just the threat of action, the charges will result in lesser penalties, though still serious.

Penalties for assault crimes are based on the charge:

Simple assault/assault and battery Up to 93 days in jail and $500 in fines
Aggravated assault where injury resulted 1 year in jail and up to $500 in fines
Domestic violence/assault 93 days in jail and a court-ordered fine
Second domestic violence/assault conviction 1 year in jail and up to $1,000 in fines

Regardless of the severity of the charges you are facing, it is essential that you seek our legal assistance as soon as possible.

We can advise you on what steps to take to ensure you are protected, and will do everything in our power to help you reach the most favorable outcome possible.

Turn to Us to Fight for Your Rights

In many cases, your defense attorney can work to obtain a deferred sentence for you, which would let you avoid jail time if you completed a court-ordered program. Successful completion would result in your case being dismissed. In other cases, you may fight your charges all together, working to get them dropped or dismissed prior to trial. Our Oakland County criminal attorney can investigate the details of your case and provide the dedicated representation and relentless defense you need during this time.
