Assault & Battery Attorney in Fort Worth
Texas Violent Crime Defense Lawyer
Assault and battery are often charged in conjunction with each other; however,
there is an important distinction between the two crimes. While battery
involves the act of physically hurting or harming someone, assault is
a legal term used to describe the plan or intention of hurting someone
else. These two crimes are usually prosecuted jointly and have come to
generally describe the act of inflicting physical harm on another person.
Whether you were accused of assault and battery for a bar fight, an alleged
"road rage" incident, or for an act of self-defense, you deserve
strong advocacy from an attorney who can look out for you and who understands
the importance of the setting and motivating factors involved in the incident.
