Arapahoe County Assault Defense Attorney

Proven & Trusted Legal Representation in Colorado

Have you or someone you love been arrested for committing an act of assault? At the Law Office of Joseph A. Lazzara, P.C., I offer strong legal defense against the accusation of violent crimes such as assault. Although assault and battery are often charged together, assault on its own has more to do with the intention to do harm than the violent act itself.

It is important that you understand exactly what you are being charged 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 contact a Denver criminal defense lawyer, the better for your case, your future, and your freedom.
