Assault & Battery Attorneys in Los Angeles: The Difference Between Criminal/Civil
Over the years we have been recognized as top Los Angeles criminal attorneys and defended thousands of assault and battery cases in Los Angeles County courthouses over that time, and though we focus on criminal defense we often get inquiries about civil cases, so we thought it would be beneficial to post about the differences.
First and foremost, there’s a big difference between a criminal defense attorney and an attorney that focuses on criminal offenses as they relate to personal injury. One is tasked with defending criminal charges that can have a life-long impact on you while the other is looking at particular incidents – like an assault – that can lead to monetary rewards/compensation. Two totally different worlds.
Secondly, if you are facing criminal charges for assault or battery, it’s important to hire a criminal defense firm that specializes in that area of law to ensure you receive the best representation possible because not all criminal defense attorneys are created equal.
For example, if you or someone you love has been charged with assault/battery you not only need a criminal defense attorney but also someone with experience in defending those particular charges with a proven track record. Someone can be the best DUI lawyer but how will that help you in an assault/battery case?
