Assault and Battery Attorney

Cook County and DuPage County 

Criminal Lawyer


Pursuant to Illinois Criminal Law, an assault is defined as the threat of physical harm or battery that puts a person in fear of harm or injury.


An aggravated assault is the threatened use or brandishing of a weapon or firearm or the assault of a certain class of people including public service employees or elderly persons.


A simple argument or disagreement where the police were called can result in a charge of assault which could affect your background, reputation and finances.


A charge of assault is a Class C Misdemeanor Offense, which could result in jail time of 30 days and/or a fine of $1,500 or more. You could also receive a sentence of 30-120 hours of community service.


A Misdemeanor aggravated assault conviction could result in jail time of 1 year and a fine of up to $2,500.


A felony aggravated assault conviction could result in prison time of 1 - 3 years and a fine of $25,000 or more.


An innocent gathering that for whatever reason turns to arguing and disagreements and the police are called can result in charges of assault. Of course it depends on the gravity of the situation whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony assault.

Depending on whether it is your first charge or second charge, we as your attorney can request the court to dismiss the charges or seek reduced charges or other favorable outcome in your interest.
