Aggravated Assault Charges Can Lead To Significant Consequences
Penalties for aggravated assault can vary significantly, depending on whether the aggravated assault charge is filed as a misdemeanor or felony offense. Having an experienced criminal defense lawyer who knows how to present the facts favorably can mean the difference between community service or probation and spending one to three years in prison.

Simple Assault ∙ Aggravated Assault ∙ Assault and Battery
You can face assault charges whether or not injury or harm was actually inflicted. By definition, assault involves the threat of physical harm or injury — whether the threat resulted in actual harm (battery) or it only put the individual in fear of harm. Aggravated assault charges can result from:
- Assault with a firearm or assault with a deadly weapon
- Assault of a police officer
- Assault on school grounds or against a teacher
- Assault of other persons of a protected class (e.g. state workers, elderly, correctional employees, disabled persons)
Attorney Philip Nathe is a veteran criminal defense lawyer who is not afraid to take cases to trial. His successful defense representation is the result of his thorough case preparation and investigation, effective negotiation, and aggressive representation at trial.
