Assault

An assault can be committed in many ways, either by intentionally causing harm to another, attempting to cause harm to another, or putting another in fear of harm.  There are many different degrees of assault, from First Degree (most serious) to Fourth Degree (least serious), as well as different types of assaults (vehicular assault, watercraft assault, custodial assault, etc.)

First Degree, Second Degree, and Third Degree assaults are all felonies in Washington while Fourth Degree assault is a misdemeanor.  While the severity of a possible sentence depends on the charge and the defendant’s prior history, conviction for assaults that involved a weapon or serious bodily injury may result in hefty jail sentences and long periods of probation.  

Ashbach Law Offices will aggressively and diligently represent you towards obtaining a most favorable outcome, whether that be dismissal, verdict of not guilty, verdict to a lesser charge, or a positive plea agreement.  Our lawyers will advocate defenses on your behalf, whether they are Innocence, Insanity, Duress, Lawful use of Force, Entrapment, Merger, Intoxication, Necessity, or Diminished Capacity.  We strive to give you the ability to make informed decisions.
