Charged With Battery? Our Wheaton Lawyers Can Help.

While "assault" implies you threatened to harm someone, "battery" indicates you actually did so. Battery occurs in various contexts, including domestic battery. But bar fights and road rage incidents are also common.

Simple battery is a violent crime. This will be on your record for employers, landlords and educational institutions to see when you apply.

While the charge may be only a misdemeanor, take it seriously. Depending on circumstances such as a weapon used, or your actual intent to do harm, the charge could amount to a felony.

Take it seriously from the start; don't make a statement to police before calling our law firm. We will advise you of all of your rights, your legal situation, and your options.
