Knowledgeable counselor understands assault and battery
Generally, assault is the threat of violence, and battery is any violent or unwanted touching. These charges vary by state, and the names of the two crimes are often used interchangeably. In some states, they are not considered separate offenses. Actions such as hitting, kicking, punching or pushing are considered to be assaults. Many other actions such as grabbing or spitting can also lead to these charges. I fight all types of assault and battery charges on behalf of my clients.
