Assault is defined as any willful attempt, combined with the present ability, to cause a violent injury to another person. Battery is the use of violent force on another individual. The penalties for such action can be serious; a conviction on assault charges can result in up to six months of imprisonment and a $1,000 fine (a conviction on a battery charge can result in a fine up to $2,000). If you or a loved one has been charged with assault and battery, you should contact The FIRM LA.
Any forced, non-consensual sexual act with another individual is illegal in the state of California, and can result in severe penalties.

Our lawyers can review your case and help determine the best way to defend your legal rights in a court of law.
