We Have Record Of Success In Defending These Cases

Assault with a deadly weapon occurs when a person assaults another person with an object that is capable of causing serious physical injury or death. It is important to note that you can be charged with assault with a deadly weapon even when no injury occurs. The mere threat of violence or harm using a weapon is sufficient. Thus, pointing a gun at someone in a manner that makes them fearful of being shot is assault.

Assault with a deadly weapon, which is also known as felonious assault, is a felony offense punishable by up to four years in jail. A weapon can be anything from a gun or knife to a baseball bat, pipe or heavy rock. If a gun is used in an assault, you may also face a felony firearms charge, which is a separate offense.
