I Can Help You to Beat Assault Charges 

When you have been charged with assault, an experienced criminal defense attorney can make the difference between jail or prison time and dismissal or acquittal. The Law Office of Thomas F. McKenna in Walnut Creek, California, can help you to build a strong defense against allegations of assault. In my 30+ year criminal defense career, I have helped many people avoid the serious penalties that come with an assault conviction — and I can help you to do the same.

An Assault Conviction Comes With Serious Consequences

The penalties associated with assault and battery charges vary depending on the circumstances, but they often include fines, jail or prison time, probation or parole, payment of the damages caused to victims and participation in a mandated anger management program, in addition to the consequences of having a criminal record such as difficulty obtaining employment.

I have three decades of experience in handling a broad variety of assault cases, including those involving:

  • Domestic violence
  • Simple assault and battery
  • Assault with intent to cause great bodily harm
  • Aggravated assault such as assault with a deadly weapon or assault with a firearm
  • Attempted murder
  • Repeat assault and battery offenses
  • Mayhem

Your choice of attorney when you have been charged with a serious violent crime such as assault can make all the difference for your future. My strategic approach and familiarity with the Contra Costa County criminal justice system give me a significant advantage, allowing me to achieve optimal results for my clients.
