Assault Crimes in Miami, FL

Choose the defense of an experienced criminal lawyer.

Assault takes place when one individual (the defendant) has threatened violence against another person (the victim). Attempted physical violence is referred to as assault. In order for assault to be proven, actual physical violence is not necessary. Use of a deadly weapon will result in increased penalties and is known as aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Whether you have been arrested for a misdemeanor or a felony assault charge, you can face heavy penalties of up to 5 years in jail and a $5,000 fine. Our Miami criminal defense attorneys at DeFabio, Beckham & Solis can be by your side throughout even the most difficult assault case.

Defenses to Florida Assault Charges

As is evident, you will likely need a foolproof defense strategy to protect yourself against an assault conviction. At DeFabio, Beckham & Solis, we are dedicated to informing our clients of their available defense strategies and aggressively pursuing a dismissal of their charges. One effective defense for many assault cases is "consent." We may be able to prove that the alleged victim of assault had consented to the offending actions.

Self-defense is another possible strategy against your Florida assault charge. You may be allowed to use a reasonable amount of force in an act of self-defense.

We can devise a strong defense strategy that is appropriate for your case. With a thorough investigation of each detail of the alleged offense, you have a greater opportunity of negotiating your charges down to a lower offense.

Whether you are facing charges for assault or aggravated assault, you should take immediate action to avoid the full force of these penalties. To schedule a free initial case evaluation, contact us today!
