Assault/Aggravated Assault

The Chicago criminal defense attorneys at The Davis Law Group, P.C. represent clients charged with assault and aggravated assault throughout Illinois. Assault and aggravated assault are less common than a charge of battery, but are still seen with regularity in the Illinois circuit courts.

Assault is basically defined as an act by the accused that places the alleged victim in reasonable apprehension of receiving a battery. Put simply, one must actually do something that makes another person believe that they will immediately be struck and/or injured by the accused. An aggravated assault is the same as an assault in terms of the conduct required to sustain the charge. However, in an aggravated assault, either (1) the accused was yielding a deadly weapon or device designed to look like a firearm during the alleged commission of the assault, or (2) the alleged victim was a law enforcement officer, teacher, park district employee, or State employee - and the accused was aware of this fact. In Illinois, an aggravated assault that involves the use of an actual firearm is a Class 4 felony.

Our attorneys provide high quality legal representation throughout Cook, Lake, and DuPage Counties.  Feel free to explore our website and contact our firm if you have been charged with assault or if you are facing criminal charges in Illinois.

I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the success in getting my charges reduced. It has been a rather traumatic experience for me. Though I try to keep an optimistic outlook, it didn't seem possible. But you guys pulled it off and I couldn't be more grateful. This has been a great weight lifted off my shoulders. D.F.
I would like to take this time to thank you for a job well done. I received my full reinstatement documents today for full driving privileges. This took me by surprise. I did not expect to see the results this fast. I just want to say that I am blessed to have a very good lawyer like yourself to guide me through the process... I am very grateful. You're the best. Thanks again. G.B.
My special thanks for your help, guidance, and support during a most difficult time. You came recommended as "the best" and you lived up to your reputation! I wish you a lovely holiday season and a new year of challenges overcome, new joys experienced, and much fulfillment realized. All good thoughts your way. S.S.
I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
