Fort Collins Second-Degree and First-Degree Assault Charge Attorneys

When an assault occurs, law enforcement assesses the situation from the perspective of the alleged victim, the alleged offender, and any witnesses. Law enforcement officers are forced to make quick judgment calls to determine the seriousness of the situation. A false or exaggerated statement has the potential to increase your charges from a Misdemeanor to a felony.

If you are facing second-degree or first-degree assault charges, you are also facing the possibility of a mandatory Department of Correction sentence. Therefore, it is critical for you to have an experienced defense attorney evaluate the evidence and accusations. This is a highly complicated area of Criminal Law where the evidence and accusation distinguish between Felony and Misdemeanor Charges.
