Assault, Domestic Assault and Sexual Assault

Assault covers a variety of situations in which force or threats of force are used against another person. If you have been charged with assault, assault with a weapon or assault causing bodily harms, you may have many questions about your charge(s) and about how the law applies to you.

At the law office of Edward Chu, we will answer your questions and help you make the right choices to protect yourself from unfair conviction or excessive consequences.

The Aggressive Defence You Need Against Assault Charges

We deal with a wide variety of assault cases at our firm, including but not limited to:

  • Spousal/domestic violence: Many assault charges are domestic assault charges involving husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends. Many of them have never been involved with the criminal justice system before, and are very concerned about getting a criminal record.
  • Sexual assault: These include a wide range of situations, from charges of inappropriate touching, invitation to touch, date rape, to aggravated sexual assault. Serious social stigma often plays a large role in these cases such as having to register oneself to the National Sex Offender Registry.
  • General assault: Quite often, these cases involve alcohol, drugs and events that happen very quickly at the heat of the moment. Conflicting eyewitness evidence can be a large part of the case against you. An effective counsel can assist you to navigate the evidence and to provide you with the strength or weakness of the prosecution.

Getting a lawyer early will put you in the best position to ensure that you are on the right track and keep your record clear.
