Riverside Assault Attorney
Providing a Strong Defense on Your Behalf
An assault occurs when one individual threatens to commit, or intends to commit, physical harm to another. Battery is the actual touching or harming someone without their consent. Most states connect both crimes as a type of bodily injury, but, in fact, assault is an attempted battery and will stand as a crime on its own without a battery being committed. An example would be if someone throws a punch at another during a fight, the act of throwing that punch would be an assault. If the punch lands and the other person is struck, then a battery has been committed.
As the law does not require that there needs to be an injury for an assault to have occurred, which opens the door for someone to be wrongly accused of and arrested for assault. In any accusation of assault, an aggressive defense must be initiated early in the process. The experienced Riverside assault lawyers from Law Offices of Grech & Packer have almost 50 years of combined experience helping clients who have been unjustly accused of assault. Our firm’s founder, Mr. Grech, is a Certified Specialists in Criminal Law by the State Bar of California, an accomplishment shared by only a few attorneys in this state.

The Difference Between Simple Assault and Aggravated Assault
An individual may be charged with simple assault when the threats made or injuries received are not very serious. When a deadly weapon is used in the commission of the crime, or when the victim suffers serious injury, the charge is escalated to aggravated assault.
Assault charges may result from:
- Self-defense in the event of an assault
- A conflict in a public place
- Domestic violence
- Disorderly conduct
- Road rage
How severe the penalties will be depends on whether a weapon was used, and the extent of the injuries received. If convicted, you may be facing jail or prison time, stiff fines, and have to pay restitution to the victim. These are serious consequences and require immediate legal help.
If you have been charged with assault, battery, or domestic violence, reach out to our office for a review of your case. We will vigorously pursue a favorable outcome on your behalf.
