Sacramento Felony Assault Lawyer
Fighting to Help You Avoid a Prison Sentence and Felony Record
If you have been accused of felony assault in California, you could be facing a year or more in prison, a substantial fine, a "strike" on your criminal record and other serious consequences. You need a criminal defense lawyer who is prepared to aggressively protect your rights.
At the Law Office of Thomas A. Johnson, we defend clients throughout California who have been charged with aggravated assault and similar offenses. Our firm is led by Sacramento felony assault attorney Thomas A. Johnson, a former state and federal prosecutor.
Aggressively Defending Clients Against Serious Assault Charges
Under California Penal Code section 245(a)(1), assault is a felony if it is committed with a firearm, another deadly weapon or "any means of force likely to produce great bodily injury." It is not necessary to prove that the alleged victim actually suffered a great bodily injury.
If you are convicted of felony assault, you will be left with a criminal record that will limit your career opportunities, not to mention your basic rights, for the rest of your life.
Our firm has the experience and resources to diligently investigate the facts of your case, discover weaknesses in the prosecution's case, negotiate a dismissal or reduction of your charges if possible, and defend you in court before a jury of your peers if necessary.
