Attorney In San Francisco Helping Clients Facing Assault And Battery Charges

Assault is one of the most common charges encountered in courts in San Francisco, Oakland and throughout the Bay Area. Assault and battery charges stem from a variety of altercations, including domestic disputes, fights in bars, road rage incidents and altercations with police.

Just because these charges are common, however, does not mean you can take them lightly. Even fighting charges of simple assault is not so simple. If you have been charged with assault of any kind, you face a possible jail sentence and a permanent criminal record that can have long-term consequences on your career and family life.
