Handling Assault Charges for 21 Years

A one-time altercation with a spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend or other person following a few drinks or the use of illicit or legal drugs in California can have serious legal consequences. As violent crimes, assault and domestic violence can count as a "strike" in California. The nature of the incident or a previous felony or even misdemeanor conviction can lead to time in a state prison.

Criminal defense lawyer Jeffrey D. Seaton of the Law Office of Jeffrey D. Seaton can provide knowledgeable and diligent legal assistance. Attorney Seaton is a zealous advocate for all clients and arduously defends each client's rights following charges involving great bodily injury.

Numerous factors can influence the end result of your assault case. For instance:

  • What is your criminal history, if any?
  • Has the "victim" recanted his or her story?
  • What does a thorough investigation of the case reveal?

Police officers most often conduct only a cursory investigation of assault cases, interviewing just one or several witnesses. We interview all witnesses, and we understand that judges and district attorneys have great discretion when handling assault and domestic violence cases; we can provide investigation reports to the district attorney's office and argue for a mitigation of charges, with the goal of having your charges reduced or dismissed.
