Assault with a deadly weapon is a serious felony offense, which could result in a significant term of imprisonment. An assault with a deadly weapon, other than a firearm, may result in a prison sentence of up to four years. Aggravating factors, such as an assault with a firearm, machine gun, semi-automatic weapon or assault of a police officer, could result in a longer term of imprisonment [CA Penal Code 245].

As a former prosecutor, Daniel Perlman understands how other prosecutors may approach such cases and what evidence they need to obtain a conviction. Our attorneys will ask key questions on your behalf to raise a strong defense:
- Did you have an intent to assault the alleged victim?

- Is this a case of mistaken identity?
- Are there any witnesses other than the alleged victim?
- Was the alleged victim intoxicated, high or otherwise impaired?
- Can we use self-defense as a viable defense on your behalf?
- Did the police violate your constitutional rights or make procedural errors we can use to your advantage?

We Take Time to Help Our Clients Make Informed Decisions
Depending on the facts of your case, you may decide that it is not in your best interests to take your case to trial. A plea to simple assault or another lesser charge could significantly reduce the penalties you face. In some instances, a plea could be possible that would allow you to avoid a felony conviction, or avoid a conviction altogether.
If the prosecution makes a plea offer, we will fully explain the terms of the offer and how it may impact your future. Moreover, if alcohol treatment, drug treatment, counseling or other measures may help you avoid future legal entanglements, we may be able to use such options to demonstrate that you take your charges seriously and you are taking remedial measures to avoid future problems. Taking such measures can affect the way a judge or prosecutor views your case, as corrective measures demonstrate responsibility and reduce concerns of recidivism.
Whether you choose to fight your charges at trial or seek a favorable plea agreement, we will be by your side every step of the way throughout your case to provide the vigorous defense and highly personalized service that you need. We care about our clients and take significant measures to protect their freedom, record and rights.
