Belville Aggravated Assault Attorney

Our violent crimes lawyer represents clients who have been charged with:

  • Misdemeanor assault, including simple assault and assault on a female (AOF), which may or may not be related to domestic violence
  • Felony assault, including assault inflicting serious injury or assault with intent to kill, assault with a deadly weapon, also known as “alphabet” assaults, and assault by strangulation
  • Domestic violence, potentially resulting in a 50B protective order

Even threatening someone with violence may be enough to constitute simple assault under North Carolina law, if that person is reasonably afraid of harm as a result of your threat. The punishment for conviction of assault increases with the seriousness of the crime with which you are accused.

As part of building your defense, we will carefully listen to your story, examine all of the circumstances surrounding your arrest and determine if we are able to show that you acted in self-defense, or if some other “mitigating” circumstances existed. We are dedicated to achieving results on your behalf.
