Assault & Battery

Akron Assault & Battery Lawyer

What is assault & battery?

Assault and battery are actually two separate charges though they are commonly grouped together. Assault is the attempt or threat to do harm to another. Although assault and battery is commonly charged when one person strikes another, no actual physical impact needs to be made for an assault to have occurred. Battery occurs when there is physical contact between the attacker and the victim. Battery requires more than just a verbal threat - it is forceful.

If you have been charged with assault and battery you should obtain skilled legal counsel immediately. Attorney Yoder and Attorney DiCaudo have extensive experience on both sides of the courtroom - as former prosecutors with over 85 years combined experience and as criminal defense lawyers. This prosecutorial experience gives them insight as to how prosecution will build a case against you, and therefore how to more effectively defend it. Speak to an Akron criminal defense lawyer today to find out how we can best represent your case.

Assault & Battery Charges

Assault and battery may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the severity of the offense. If convicted of a violent crime such as assault & battery or domestic violence, penalties may be harsh, potentially including a prison sentence and high bail or even no bail. Beyond this a criminal record for a violent crime can have secondary consequences down the line.

If you have been charged with assault and battery, it is vital that you have skilled legal representation that can thoroughly investigate your case and mount a strong defense. We will work on effective defense strategies and aggressively fight your case.
