At the Law Office of Joseph A. Lazzara, P.C., I offer strong legal defense

do with the intention to do harm than the violent act itself.

with and how it will affect you if you are convicted, and I am prepared
to do exactly that. My firm takes an educational approach. I can also
ensure you are aware of your options and how having an attorney on your
side could benefit your case.
Facing Assault Charges in Denver?
In the eyes of the law, assault is any type of unlawful and purposeful
threat to harm another person or to commit an act of violence against
them. There are other factors that must be involved in an assault charge
in order to have a strong case to achieve a conviction. As a Denver criminal
attorney, I can explain these charges to you.
To reach a conviction for assault, the prosecutor must prove the following:
- That a verbal threat or act of violence took place
- That you had the ability to carry out any act of violence
- That you committed assault while carrying out another crime
Depending on the circumstances, assault can be charged as a misdemeanor
or felony. If you are convicted, you could face time in jail or prison,
extensive fines, as well as a variety of other penalties. The sooner you
Denver criminal defense lawyer, the better for your case, your future, and your freedom.
