Assault Protecting Your Freedom

Clarksville Assault Lawyer

What is Assault?

Assault is defined as an intentional act committed by one person, which creates a fear or apprehension of imminent physical harm in another person. It is the threat of bodily harm combined with the ability to inflict such harm. Threatening words alone are insufficient to be classified as assault. It takes an action which indicates an ability to carry out the threat, in order for it to be considered assault.

Whether that will involve pursuing dismissal of charges, reduction in penalties, or taking the case to trial, the attorneys at the firm are dedicated to giving you the best representation possible.
