Presenting a strong defense against violent crime charges

A defendant charged with assault may be facing prison time. You need an attorney who is determined and serious about fighting for you, and who has the experience and knowledge to succeed. Polansky Law Firm defends individuals in the criminal justice system and our attorneys are true advocates for the rights of defendants charged with violent crimes.

What is an assault?

Generally, an assault is an unwanted touching with some form of injury, from slight pain to serious bodily injury.  In Colorado, the degree of assault charge varies depending on the intent of the accused and the severity of injury sustained by the alleged victim:

Relevant Colorado Law-pertinent excerpts here:

§ 18-3-202. Assault in the first degree

§ 18-3-203. Assault in the second degree

§ 18-3-204. Assault in the third degree

What are some types of assaults?

Assaults occur for a variety of reasons. Many assault charges stem from simple fights. In these cases, our attorneys work to show that you were acting in self-defense and are not a violent criminal. Other assaults are gang-related or occur in conjunction with other crimes such as robbery. Assaults of a sexual nature are treated differently by the law. In all cases, our attorneys present a strong defense in an attempt to preserve your freedom.

Reducing an assault charge

Depending on the facts of your case, the state may choose to charge you with a higher level crime than is necessary. Our attorneys work to get your charges reduced through a variety of pretrial motions. We also fight to get our clients the most lenient sentence possible under the circumstances.
