Assaults

Assaults are often very serious charges and can result in significant penalties.  Lewis and Associates, P.A. represents clients for all types of assault charges throughout the State Of Minnesota.  We have represented people charged in both State and Federal Courts.

There are a number of different types of assaults that you may be charged with.

    • Domestic Assault
    • Sexual Assault
    • Assault and Battery
    • Terroristic Threats
    • Disorderly Conduct

Each type of assault has varying degrees of seriousness attached to it which can range from 5th degree to 1st degree assault.

There are many defenses to assault charges and our attorneys are familiar with all of them including:

    • Self Defense
    • Lack of Proof Beyond A Reasonable Doubt
    • Lack of Proof of Required Injury
    • Lack of Proof of Required Weapon
    • Defense of Another
    • Mutual Combat

At Lewis and Associates, our attorneys have settled hundreds of assault cases where the client would have no criminal record of the assault.  We have also successfully argued for jail alternatives where mandatory jail is required such as community work service or house arrest.

If you have been charged or simply arrested for assault, you have the right to speak to an attorney.
