About Assault in Washington

The term “assault” can be used to describe a wide range of situations. The most common involve intentional or attempted harm to another person with or without a weapon.

There are four degrees of assault and the penalties range from gross misdemeanor up to three classes of felony. Consequences for first-, second-, third- and fourth-degree assault vary and are dependent on several factors including the use of a weapon, severity of the injury (if one occurred) and criminal history of the accused (if applicable).

Assault charges are often brought together with other criminal accusations such as Harassment or Malicious Mischief. In some cases, they can also be designated Domestic Violence (DV). If your assault charge has been labeled DV, visit Domestic Violence for more information.

Building a Sound Defense for Your Assault Case

As your defense attorney, my objective is to protect your rights and reputation. After establishing a thorough understanding of the details of your specific situation, I will advise you on the steps we must take to build the strongest defense for your unique case.

As with any case, my primary goal is to identify credible reasons to have the charges against you dismissed. Examples of this may be that you were acting in self-defense, defense of others or defense of your property. The next step is to engage in negotiations to avoid conviction and prevent or minimize the penalties you face. A strategic negotiation can often avoid or reduce sanctions such as fines, treatment requirements or jail time.
