A Strong Defense Against Assault Or Battery Charges
Assault and battery are violent crimes in Colorado. Even when they’re misdemeanors, they can take a big toll on your life, impacting your reputation, job opportunities, privileges and freedoms.
I’m defense attorney Jaime Cowan, the founder of The Law Offices of Jaime Cowan in Denver, and I can help you fight assault or battery charges. When you work with me, you’ll benefit from my 15-plus years of criminal law experience, including the skill and insight I gained as a senior prosecutor for Adams County. Now, I put that experience to work in advocating for my clients.
Understanding Assault And Battery Charges
Assault charges in Colorado range from misdemeanors to felonies. Simple assault is a misdemeanor and involves knowingly or recklessly causing bodily injury, which is physical pain to another.
Felonious assault involves a weapon or knowingly, recklessly or intentionally causing serious bodily injury to another. Serious bodily injury involves breaks, fractures or burns of the second or third degree. Felonious assault can require a mandatory sentence to prison.
Battery – also known as “menacing” – involves making threats or brandishing a weapon. It can be a felony or misdemeanor.
No matter what kind of charges you are facing, you need an experienced attorney to help you navigate these serious charges, and you deserve honest, judgment-free representation. I believe that great legal representation should not be only available to certain tax brackets, which is why I am proud to provide my community with the representation they deserve at an affordable rate.
