Defending Yourself in Court

If you are accused of assault in California, you will have the chance to present a defense in court before you are found either innocent or guilty. Although you can elect to defend yourself in court or take on a public defender, this is not the best choice for most defendants. The law surrounding assault in California is complicated, so it’s important to trust your case to a licensed lawyer who has experience in this practice area.

Being accused of assault can affect your life in many ways. However, although the accusation itself can be harmful to your reputation, it doesn’t compare to the trouble you will face if convicted of the crime. Being convicted of assault can not only send you to jail for a significant amount of time, but it can also affect your personal and professional life. For this reason, you need a skilled San Jose assault defense lawyer on your side if you are accused of assault in California.
