Assault charges range in California, from simple misdemeanor offenses all the way to felony strike offenses that can affect you for the rest of your life. It is very important that the attorney representing you knows the exact charge brought against you and the consequences that may follow. Sadly, too many attorneys do not advise their clients on these consequences and many lawyers do not realize that some assault charges, known as “wobblers,” can be reduced to misdemeanors after simple discussions with the judge or prosecutor. It all matters on the attorney you have chosen.
The attorneys at Kundani & Chang LLP have had years of experience handling these sorts of cases. As former prosecutors, we know the in’s and out’s of what it takes to prosecute assault crimes and, as a result, what it takes to defend these crimes. Our attorneys can advise you first-hand whether you may be able to assert a defense – whether it be self-defense, defense of others, accident, or mutual combat. If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, the attorney at Kundani & Chang LLP should be your first call.
