Palo Alto Assault Lawyer

Palo Alto assault lawyer serving Cupertino, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Redwood City, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Saratoga & Sunnyvale


I have experience in dealing with people charged with all types of assaultive conduct, from minor matters to deadly assaults and charges of attempted murder. I have successfully defended against many charges of sexual assault, as well.

Misdemeanor assaults:

Sometimes, if I can obtain the consent of the “victim” of the assault and the Court, I can get these kinds of charges dismissed.

Even in cases where I am unable to get the charge dismissed, I am frequently able to get these charges greatly reduced, sometimes to Disturbing the Peace, or other minor infractions that are acceptable to the client.

If I cannot get the case either dismissed or settled to the client’s satisfaction, I have in-depth jury trial experience in defending these cases.

Felony assaults, including charges of sexual assault:

Obviously, each case involving more seriously charged assaults is dependent on the facts of that specific case. Since I have experience not only defending these cases, but prosecuting these cases as well, I am aware of how the prosecution views each case and I can use that experience to your benefit, not only in dealings with the prosecution, but also against them, if your case must go to trial.

My Palo Alto criminal defense law firm serves all of Northern California and the Bay Area with particular emphasis in assault defense for Cupertino, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Redwood City, Saratoga, Sunnyvale, Palo Alto, Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, and Alameda County.
