Aggravated Assault Lawyers in Phoenix
Phoenix Criminal Defense Attorneys on Your Side
Yes, there was a fight. Maybe it looked bad. Maybe you looked like the
aggressor. But is that the whole story? Probably not. Are you really guilty
of aggravated assault? Probably not. Let us help tell your side of the story.
assault charges in Arizona can come after a bar fight, a domestic disturbance,
or another type of dispute. Depending on the situation, you could be looking
at some serious time behind bars - it's possible you'd get 5 to
15 years if you're convicted of this felony offense.

charges. And you'll have two lawyers assigned to your case, not just

Clichés are clichés because there's truth to them. You
know what criminal defense lawyers like us say: "It was self-defense!"
But they say this because it's often true. Many people charged with
aggravated assault get caught up in something that got out of hand, and
they're forced to fight to protect themselves.
Even if it Wasn't Self-Defense
Emotions can get the best of us. Every human being knows this. The only
person who won't be willing to admit it is the prosecutor - but the
prosecutor still must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
The law in Arizona says that a fight or confrontation can become aggravated
assault due to:
Serious bodily harm: When you're accused of causing life-threatening injury or serious
damage like broken bones
Dangerous instrument: When you're accused of using a knife or beer bottle or some other
thing that could cause serious injury (even if the person is not seriously injured)
Deadly weapon charge: When you're accused of shooting someone, shooting the gun, raising
or showing the gun, or even just having the gun on you at the time of
the alleged assault
There are escalating prison terms for each level of violence. Even just
threatening someone with a dangerous weapon - but not hurting the person
- can result in aggravated assault with a mandatory prison sentence.
