Assault and Battery

Knowledgeable Utah Battery Attorney

Legal definitions of "assault" and "battery" differ from state to state. Basically, in Utah, an assault is committed when you threaten to hit or harm someone. Battery is committed when you actually do hit or harm someone.

The attorneys at Greg Smith and Associates can defend you with passion and purpose if you are charged with either of these crimes. Our lead attorney, Greg Smith, has prosecutorial experience and knows how to successfully resolve even the most complicated cases.

We have experience with statutes dealing with assault and battery; we will diligently protect your presumption of innocence and begin to defend you against the charges immediately.

Arrange a free consultation by contacting us online or by calling 801-651-1512.

More About Assault and Battery

Assault can be the threat to harm another individual or to "create a fear in a person that violence is imminent." Assault can be a misdemeanor or a felony. Aggravated assault is committed with a deadly weapon — a knife, gun, car or anything else that could cause harm — and is punishable by serious prison time.

Battery is an actual physical attack. There are three main types of battery charges:

Mitigating Circumstances

We have excellent reputations with prosecutors and engage them in reasonable negotiations on your case. Our credibility goes a long way in helping them understand that the situation may not have been black and white. There may be circumstances that could be leveraged to achieve a pretrial motion to reduce or dismiss charges. We work to understand the circumstances surrounding your assault charges and will ask such questions as:

All these aspects and more can be discussed with prosecutors before trial in a cooperative and professional way, not an adversarial one. Over the years, we have earned the trust of other lawyers, and this is important in plea negotiations and often results in more favorable outcomes for our clients.

Serious Charges Require High-Quality Legal Representation

If you are charged with assault, battery or both, you may be facing fines, prison, stress for your family and the loss of your reputation. We will leverage our experience and knowledge to defend you and to produce a positive outcome in your case.

Contact the attorneys at Greg Smith and Associates today for a no-cost consultation and an honest assessment of your case. You reach us at 801-651-1512 or contact us online.

Clients with disabilities or impairments
Access to our office is available to clients and their family members at all times. Special equipment and communication devices are available upon request for our clients with visual, hearing, speech and physical impairment. In addition, arrangements can be made for verbal or sign language interpreters if needed to communicate between our attorneys and the client and family. Please notify our law office if any additional accommodations related to your disability or impairment are necessary to make your consultation more comfortable.

I understand that I am contacting a corporation, not an individual, and that if I do business with the law firm, it will be with that corporation, not any individual(s). I understand that Greg Smith and Associates is not the legal name of the law firm, rather, it is "Aafordable Legal Advocates, PC." I also understand that whatever may relate to, or arise out of, any communication with the law firm, which results in any type of legal action, such must be brought in the Third District Court of Utah, West Jordan Department, and that this is mandatory not permissive.
