ASSAULT & BATTERY LAWYER

ASSAULT

Under California Penal Code 240 PC, assault is defined as an “unlawful attempt… coupled with a present ability… to commit a violent injury upon another person.”  In easier terms, this means that carrying out the deed is probably going to result in force towards another person.

California assault law doesn’t necessitate a definite injury. Because of this, it is easy for people to be wrongly accused, and in some cases convicted, of assault.

In order to receive a conviction for assault, the prosecution must show that you had the intention to cause injury to someone else and that you were capable of manufacture this situation. Rarely is a defendant charged with a “basic assault”; charges are usually accompanied with assault with a weapon.

MISDEMEANOR  AND FELONY ASSAULT CHARGES

  • Simple assault charge
  • Fines up to $1000 and/or incarceration up to 6 months
  • Aggravating factors will elevate the sentencing

BATTERY

Battery is defined by California Penal Code section 242 as a “willful and unlawful use of force or violence upon the person of another.” Battery is any conscious and unlawful touch that is hurtful and/or offensive.

MISDEMEANOR BATTERY CHARGES

  • Simple batteries
  • Verdicts with fines of up to $2000 and/or 6 months of jail time

FELONY BATTERY CHARGES

  • More serious batteries
  • Verdicts with jail time of  2, 3 or 4 years

Annifred F.
An excellent and professional consultation followed by a successful win of my case.
Dan P.
Thank you Kirk. You guys are top notch. Kept me informed on everything that was going on with my case and I didn’t have to show up in court once. Got my case dismissed, now I can move on. I would recommend this law firm to anyone that wants a fair shake.
James
I had a difficult case that I was trying to fight from outside the state it was turned down twice. Once by the DA, and the second time by the judge, they continued to fight for me, and got the results I was looking for. They really do care about their clients and will not stop fighting till they get you the results you want.
Adrian A.
I couldn’t be happier with the service we received. From the very beginning I could tell that these lawyers knew a lot about DUI cases and throughout our court days they went above and beyond to make sure we were prepared for whatever might come our way. They definitely prepare you for the worst but get you the best. They covered every single base and we got an amazing outcome. I would recommend them any day.
Client
I want to thank Bobby, Kirk, and the entire staff. They recalled my warrant and got my case dismissed in no time. They answered my concerns and took me step by step in the process. I didn’t even have to appear in court. They represented me and took care of my case all the way. Thank you!!!
Suriel A.
I would like to thank Mr. Shamuilian and Mr. Tarman for helping me to get a good result for my case. They are very reliable people that kept things very professional. I recommend them strongly, they will help you tremendously. I was very lucky that I had the opportunity to work with such highly skilled people. You won’t regret hiring them, thanks again.
Bachir
Good attorneys are hard to find! Bobby Shamuilian actually represented me with my best interest at heart. He gave it his all and because of that my case is being dismissed today. This firm is most definitely the best one to have if you need a criminal attorney. God forbid I ever need a criminal defense attorney, I would not even consider anyone else to represent me. Absolutely an amazing attorney!!!!! THANK YOU!!!!
Christine
I had the pleasure of working with Kirk, and his office regarding my DUI case. I was originally charged with 2 felony counts (vehicle codes 23153A & 23153B). Kirk’s office was very professional and was able to negotiate with the District Attorney get my conviction reduced to a 1 count misdemeanor. Throughout the whole ordeal of two court dates, he and staff was available for any of my questions and concerns.
Tobias
Everyone in the office was helpful and professional. There was never a time when I thought they weren’t going to be there when we needed them. Their reputation and professionalism was the primary factor for using this law firm. Boy, were we impressed with all of the work they put into our case. Thank you to everyone in the office for always making us feel like we were your only clients!
Neckole S.
I found myself facing a DUI and scared to death. From the very start of the initial consultation, Attorneys Kirk Tarman and Bobby Shamuilian put me at ease. They handled my DMV Hearing and the court proceeding and truly fought for me. They were always attentive to my phone calls and emails, keeping me informed. They were able to get me a reduced charged so that I do not have a DUI on my record. I am so thankful to have retained them for my case.
Blaine
Got my case dropped from a felony to 2 misdemeanors to having everything dismissed. Justice has been served, nothing more I could ask for! Many thanks Patty, Kirk and Bobby!
