Defending Against Assault And Battery Allegations
Colorado law creates several classifications of assault and battery crimes. The degree of the offense and the possible consequences depend on the particular facts of each case, including:
- The threatening actions taken
- The defendant’s intent
- Whether there was harmful physical contact
- Whether a deadly weapon was involved
Assault and battery charges carry serious consequences. A felony-level conviction can lead to jail time. If a deadly weapon was used, the prison sentence can be significant. Even misdemeanor offenses can permanently mar your criminal record, impacting your educational opportunities, employment prospects, housing and other important aspects of life.
Dedicated Advocates • More Than 40 Years Of Experience
Everyone makes mistakes in life. Perhaps you were involved in a bar fight. Perhaps violence erupted in the confusion of a party or concert.

Experienced Trial Attorneys And Skilled Negotiators
In many cases, prosecutors overcharge assault and battery cases or seek a harsher sentence than is necessary. We closely examine every case to explore all avenues for achieving a successful outcome. Our attorneys are effective negotiators; we have successfully obtained reduced charges and lesser sentences through aggressive plea bargaining. At the same time, however, we will never hesitate to take a case to trial if needed.
Colorado law allows the use of force in self-defense under limited circumstances. Because the use of force must be reasonable and proportional to the perceived threat, self-defense can be difficult to prove. Our attorneys understand the complex legal standards surrounding self-defense, and we know how to present a compelling case.
