A Tough Defense Against Assault Charges
At Martin & Reed, LLC, we provide experienced criminal defense representation in all assault cases: third-degree assault, second-degree assault and first-degree assault. Our Northern Colorado law firm is led by a former public defender, so you can be confident that we have the ability to provide the skilled representation you need, in negotiation or trial.
People are often surprised by how little it takes to be charged with assault. Any act that causes the alleged victim pain can result in a charge of third-degree assault. There is no requirement that there is medical evidence of an injury, not even a bruise. Pushing someone can result in assault charges. These charges are serious, and can even result in mandatory incarceration if convicted in the event that the alleged victim was a police officer. Our assault lawyer in Greeley can defend you.
Second-degree assault is a felony. If you are convicted, you will be incarcerated. Typically, second-degree assault charges involve assault with a deadly weapon. The weapon may be a bat or a club or any other item, even if the item was not manufactured as a weapon. In certain circumstances, feet and fists can be classified as deadly weapons. The other type of second-degree assault charge is assault with serious bodily injury. We thoroughly investigate and defend against all second-degree assault charges.
First-degree assault is a felony. It is essentially one step down from the charge of attempted murder. More often than not, a first-degree assault charge will involve assault with a knife. Our attorney has the strength to defend against these serious charges.
We can also defend against all other violent crime charges, including attempted murder and murder, and cases involving use of firearms.
