Santa Ana Assault Attorney

Need a Lawyer for Assault Charges in Santa Ana?

Depending upon the circumstances and evidence in an assault case, a conviction could lead to either a felony or misdemeanor charge. Generally defined as the attempt to commit battery on another person, in which the victim had a reasonable apprehension of harm, assault charges can be filed even when no physical contact occurred. In violent crimes, the court can impose serious penalties, including prison time in many cases.

If convicted of assault, you might face some or all of the following:

  • Jail or prison sentence;
  • Large fines, possibly including restitution;
  • Probation;
  • Community service;
  • Anger management classes; and
  • Conviction on your criminal record.

Depending upon your unique case, these punishments can be enhanced. For example, if it is alleged that you had a firearm or weapon in your possession, you could be facing much harsher charges – even if you did not discharge or use the weapon. Any assault that is considered to be a gang offense will also will have enhanced penalties.

Fred Highland

There are hundreds of DUI lawyers out there, and I’m sure there’s are a few that know how to win, but I don’t think all attorneys have the legal experience and relentless compassion, followed up by the genuine care that Attorney Tom Tears has proven to me as a client.

Joel Villarreal

I never felt like he wasn’t completely devoted to my case and my well being. He truly cares about his clients and his willingness to work with me in regards to paying out the fees was amazing. I do not believe I could have found another like him. My gratitude is immeasurable.
