Assault and Battery Charges
Get Years of Experience in Your Corner
Although often used interchangeably or used together to describe one offense,
assault and battery are actually two separate crimes in Nevada.
While assault is defined as the attempt or threat of bodily harm, battery
is carrying out this attempt or threat. The severity of assault and battery charges will vary depending on the
extent of injury, whether a weapon was used, and the circumstances of
the offense, a person accused of assault and/or battery may face misdemeanor
or felony charges.
Proven Defense, Backed By Years of Experience
Are you facing assault or battery charges, or both? As a Las Vegas assault
& battery defense attorney, I can offer you the information and guidance
you need to fight these charges. I represent clients throughout Las Vegas
and offer a
free consultation to help you get started. By contacting my firm, you can speak with me

In handling cases involving assault and battery in the Las Vegas area,
I take care to fully evaluate the matter and determine the best approach.
For example, I may be able to argue that contact was unintentional, or
that you acted in self-defense or in defense of others. These are typically
the most common defenses to assault and battery, but I may also explore
other options that may entirely disprove that the act occurred at all,
that the witness's testimony cannot be trusted, or that the alleged
victim invented the event for reasons of jealousy, anger, or revenge.
The defense strategy that may apply to your unique case may vary.
