Assault With A Deadly Weapon

Assault with a deadly weapon is a serious felony offense, which could result in a significant term of imprisonment. An assault with a deadly weapon, other than a firearm, may result in a prison sentence of up to four years. Aggravating factors, such as an assault with a firearm, machine gun, semi-automatic weapon or assault of a police officer, could result in a longer term of imprisonment [CA Penal Code 245].

If you have been arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, or another violent crime that could result in a significant term of imprisonment, it is critical that you protect your rights by retaining an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Defense Against Assault With A Deadly Weapon Charges in Sonoma County

Attorney Michael A. Fiumara and his team understand how prosecutors may approach such cases and what evidence they need to obtain a conviction. Our attorneys will ask key questions on your behalf to raise a strong defense:

Did you have an intent to assault the alleged victim?

Were you carrying a deadly weapon or using a car as a weapon?

Is this a case of mistaken identity?

Are there any witnesses other than the alleged victim?

Was the alleged victim intoxicated, high or otherwise impaired?

Can we use self-defense as a viable defense on your behalf?

Did the police violate your constitutional rights or make procedural errors we can use to your advantage?

Taking these and other factors into consideration, we will build a strong defense on your behalf with the intent of seeking a case dismissal, obtaining an acquittal at trial or obtaining leverage to seek a favorable plea agreement on your behalf.

I rarely need an attorney but when I have, Michael has been very attentive to detail, hard working and imaginative. One time when other attorneys essentially refused the work, saying I should walk away from the issue, Michael and his team were able to find a solution to the problem with very positive results
