Difference Between Assault & Battery in VA

Assault and battery are two separate crimes. Assault occurs when a person places someone in fear of imminent personal harm, often through threats of violence. Battery occurs when a person causes actual physical harm to another person. When a person threatens someone with imminent harm and then follows through with that threat, and causes actual physical harm, the crime is "assault and battery."

How to Proceed

Don't wait until the police have filed charges. Investigating assault charges often depends on evidence at the scene and talking to eyewitnesses. Evidence in your favor gets stale and time is often important. If you are being questioned about a bar fight, domestic violence or other physical attack, talk to our experienced lawyer immediately.

Case Results

A Track Record of Success
  • Protective Order Domestic Violence

    Our client's estranged wife had filed a protective order to prohibit him from having contact with her to gain exclusive use and possession of the home. We were successful in showing that she had motive to fabricate and that had consulted with an attorney regarding getting our client out of her house days before filing the request for a protective order.

  • Pre Litigation Defense – Rape Sex Crimes

    Our client was the respondent of a protective order wherein the petitioner alleged that she was raped. She sought a two-year protective order and was seeking to have detectives assist in securing warrants against him. We suspect that the admissions made on cross-examination by the alleged victim at the hearing will prevent the Commonwealth from bringing any charges.

  • Protective Order Family Law

    Our client's estranged wife had filed a protective order to prohibit him from having contact with her to gain exclusive use and possession of the home. We were successful in showing that she had motive to fabricate and that had consulted with an attorney regarding getting our client out of her house days before filing the request for a protective order.

  • Driving Under the Influence 4th Offense– Bond Hearing DUI

    Our client was charged with fourth offense driving under the influence. Based upon his age and pre-existing health conditions, we were able to show that jail was an unsafe place. Our client was released on house arrest conditioned upon his wearing SCRAM bracelet which tracks his location and ensures that he does not consume alcohol.

  • Violation of Protective Order – Appeal Domestic Violence

    Our client was under a protective order to have no hostile contact with his family. The Commonwealth alleged that based upon several text exchanges that he had threatened his teenage children. Without the assistance of counsel, he received 90 days of active incarceration in lower Court. On appeal we were able to reduce his confinement to 24 hours – time served.

  • Breaking and Entering with Intent to Commit Misdemeanor Felony Defense

    Our client was charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit a misdemeanor, but the Commonwealth agreed to dismiss the charge at the preliminary hearing stage against our client who suffered severe and debilitating mental illness.

  • Third Offense Petty Larceny Felony Defense

    Our client was charged with felony third offense petty larceny, which carries a maximum sentence of five years in the Virginia State Penitentiary. We were successful in negotiating a reduction to a misdemeanor petty larceny charge with no active jail time.

  • Possession of Marijuana- Appeal Drug Crimes

    Our client plead not guilty to a second offense possession of marijuana charge. We successfully argued that the Commonwealth had failed to prove constructive possession. The case was dismissed.

  • Driving Under the Influence DUI

    Our client was charged with driving under the influence after officers answered a call for service in a church parking lot. Eyewitnesses were able to testify as to the time of operation and identify the driver. Officers testified that they smelled alcohol coming from our client, that he was unsteady on his feet, and that he had not done well on his field sobriety tests. Video evidence secured from the church and bodycam footage did not support the testimony. The DUI charge was reduced to reckless driving.

  • Domestic Violence Domestic Violence

    Our client was alleged to have assaulted the girlfriend of her child’s father during an exchange of the child at a police precinct. Phone video evidence and inconsistencies in the Prosecutor’s witness testimony led to a dismissal of the charge.
