Michigan Assault Defense Lawyer

Ensuring Your Case Is Treated with Urgency & Care

Misdemeanor Assault crimes in Michigan include Assault (Simple Assault), Assault and Battery, and Aggravated Assault. Simple Assault and Assault and Battery can put you in Jail for up to 93 days. While many believe Assault involves hitting or inflicting physical harm on someone, this is not true. Assault means you have threatened violence toward another person and does not have to involve any touching. Assault and Battery includes contact, but no injury. The more serious Aggravated Assault involves a “serious or aggravated injury,” and the maximum Jail time is increased dramatically. If you have been accused of violating the Michigan misdemeanor assault laws, your freedom and future are best protected not by a general criminal defense attorney, but someone who concentrates on Assault cases. Call Prain Law, PLLC for a free, no-obligation consultation.
