Criminal Defense Attorney Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City Assault and Battery Defense Attorney

In Utah, criminal assault charges range from simple assault to assault with intent to commit murder. Simple assault and domestic assault are misdemeanor charges. Aggravated assault and assault with a deadly weapon are felony charges.

Regardless of whether the charge is a misdemeanor or a felony, all assault charges are serious if you are convicted. You will be left with a criminal record. The immediate effect of a criminal conviction is likely to be fines and restitution, jail or prison time, and extended probation.

Even after you’ve “paid your debt,” you’ll find that an assault conviction continues to make life more difficult by reducing your chances of being hired or obtaining credit or housing.

This is not just a court case, this is your life—and it’s our fight.
