Assault & Battery

The Law Firm of Sean F. Leslie provides aggressive criminal defense representation by an experienced criminal lawyer for those clients charged with either aggravated or simple assault and battery crimes. The prosecution's decision to file felony aggravated assault usually depends on the severity of the injuries sustained by the alleged victim or whether a deadly weapon, knife or firearm was used. A client's prior criminal record and gang participation also effect the prosecutors' filing decision.

A knowledgeable San Diego criminal defense lawyer understands that criminal assault and battery charges are most often filed against the victor [winner] of a fight or a brawl even though he or she didn't start the altercation and was acting in self defense or defense of their friends. Police officers usually don't observe the altercation and arrive after it's over. They automatically assume that the guy who is bleeding the most is the victim. For this reason, an aggressive criminal lawyer will immediately commence an investigation to obtain witness statements and or surveillance videos if the fight or brawl was on a school campus, at a bar, concert, sporting events or business establishment.

A competent experienced criminal lawyer understands that assault and battery charges are always defensible and must be fully investigated and litigated prior to resolving the case.

Please feel free to contact my firm and consult a San Diego criminal defense attorney with any criminal assault and battery questions that you may have. I take personal responsibility in my firm's "commitment to excellence" in obtaining favorable result on these cases whether it's in the San Diego, Vista, El Cajon, or Chula Vista court house. I look forward to hearing from and meeting you soon. Once again, thank you for consulting a criminal lawyer in my law firm for your legal representation.
