San Fernando Valley Criminal Defense Lawyer
At the Hedding Law Firm we have dealt with assault cases including assault on a police officer. We have seen great results and have had satisfied clients. Assault on a police officer is a serious charge that can result in some severe penalties.
Our Defense Lawyers in Van Nuys will explain all the details of your charge to you, including the law, the possible penalties, and the defenses we may assert on your behalf.
Assault generally is defined as an attempted battery. Assault on a police officer must have occurred while the police officer was carrying out his or her legal duties to the public.
To be convicted of assault on a police officer, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that first you knew the person was a police officer within the scope of his or her duties and that you intentionally tried to apply physical force on the police officer.
Our goal is to prevent a conviction and to intervene and do everything we can to get the best results. We are very aware that often times police officers use and abuse their authority and try to flip the script making it seem like you were the one committing the assault but in reality you may have been using self defense.
As your Criminal Defense Attorney we will investigate and do our research and see what exactly occurred that led to your arrest.
