These situations include: inflicting serious bodily harm against a person – this would include punching somebody and breaking their nose or any other bone, assaulting a police officer – even if the officer was not injured, assaulting medical personnel – even if the person was not injured. In addition to aggravated assault, a person can be charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. For example, if a person points a gun at somebody even if the person does not pull the trigger, they will be charged with aggravated assault. Another type of aggravated assault is if a person commits assault on a child who is under the age of 15 – again, the minor does not have to be injured – the mere fact that a minor was assaulted with fall under the aggravated assault statute.
Being able to call and speak to an attorney and not just someone at the office helped keep us focused and confident about the outcome of our case.
When my son was in an accident and arrested at the scene, I knew he needed an attorney, but I didn’t even know what type of attorney. I started calling attorneys in my area and had to leave a message with everyone, but that was not the case when I called Matthew Lopez. I was put right through to him where I told him about the trouble my son was in and immediately he had a game plan. He gave us so much valuable information before we even put him on retainer. He took care of arranging and scheduling all our appearances, he consolidated the appearances since we were both traveling out of town to appear, his legal expertise helped us navigate the complex legal system and Matt worked with the prosecutor to negotiate a favorable outcome for my 18 year old son. The charges he faced could have ruined his future, but now he has hope of turning this unfortunate situation around.
When Matt says call me anytime, he really means it. Being able to call and speak to an attorney and not just someone at the office helped keep us focused and confident about the outcome of our case. Hopefully we won’t need Matt’s services in the future, but if we do, we would not hesitate to call.
