Charged with Committing Assault?
Trust My Firm to Defend Your Rights!
According to Illinois state law, a person commits assault when they threaten
to physically harm another individual. Unfortunately, accusations are
often based more on “he said, she said” than actual evidence
and innocent people are wrongly arrested each day. Whether the charges
against you are valid or not, you cannot afford to go without an aggressive
advocate fighting for your rights.
As a Chicago criminal defense attorney with more than 15 years of experience,
I have been trusted by clients facing charges just like yours. I am prepared
to fight tirelessly on your behalf and do whatever it takes to defend
you. Don’t let this incident tarnish your future!

What Penalties Could I Receive if Convicted?
Illinois classifies assault crimes into two categories – simple assault
and aggravated assault. Naturally, the latter is much more serious and
the penalties reflect that. Simple assault means that another person fears
physical harm because of your actions. Aggravated assault, however, occurs
when you use a deadly weapon, are hooded or masked, or discharge a firearm
during the act.
Penalties for either category can include the following:
- Imprisonment for up to 30 years
- Up to $25,000 in fines
- Restitution to the victim
- Community service
There is no doubt that the prosecution will do all that they can to build
a strong case against you. Far too many people who have chosen to represent
themselves get convicted and have to spend years rebuilding their lives.
When you retain my firm, you secure an advantage for yourself that many
others don’t have.
