If you have been accused of assault, you need to secure serious legal representation from our Seattle defense lawyers who can match the seriousness of your charge. Individuals convicted of assault may be penalized with fines, a criminal record, and jail time. Assault doesn't necessarily have to involve a weapon or actual physical harm to lead to charges. The mere act of threatening or making someone believe that physical harm is imminent is also considered to be a form of assault. Most of these incidents occur when individuals are in a provoked state. Unfortunately, even the smallest lapse in judgment can cost you dearly.
