Assault, Battery And Malicious Wounding Charges

Assault, battery and malicious wounding charges are all significantly different in Virginia. Assault involves threatening another person, and battery involves the actual physical act of touching or hurting another individual. Malicious wounding is a very serious offense that involves injuring another individual with the intent to seriously hurt or kill him or her. This offense is punishable by prison time and is considered a felony offense.

It is important that your lawyer takes time to investigate the details of your case so an aggressive defense can be developed. Our Virginia Beach assault defense attorneys have been successful in defending individuals facing a wide range of charges involving:

  • Assault and battery charges involving family members (including domestic violence)
  • Assault and battery charges involving law enforcement
  • Assault and battery charges involving firearms
