Minnesota Assault Lawyer

HomePractice AreasAssault

Providing Attorney Representation in Minnesota since 2005

Facing a charge for a violent crime is incredibly serious, especially when those charges are for assault.

There are five levels of assault in the State of Minnesota – Assault in the First, Second, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Degree. The degree of assault you will be charged with largely depends on the degree of violence.

Assault in the First Degree involves severe bodily harm, so much so that the case can be punished by up to 20 years in prison and a fine up $30,000.

From there, the violence associated with the various degrees of assault decreases. But each degree has life altering penalties, including long terms of imprisonment. If you or someone you love is facing charges for assault in Minnesota, then you must appoint a Minnesota criminal attorney to your case as soon as possible.

You Minnesota criminal attorney will be able to help you determine what factors will affect the outcome of your case. For example, a conviction on a domestic assault case prohibits you from ever possessing a firearm - a major consequence for people that are hunters. The length and type of probation you might be on can have daily impact on your life.

Our Minnesota Assault Attorney is experienced and informative in these cases

You may be required to go to alcohol treatment, anger management counseling, drug awareness classes, driver improvement clinics and other rehabilitative programs. We need to consider any driver's license, motor vehicle insurance and professional license consequences. How your case is handled might also affect a separate additional civil lawsuit that any alleged victim could bring against you as well.

The six attorneys at Halberg Criminal Defense bring an unparalleled blend of criminal defense experience together in one law firm - with over 100 years of combined criminal trial experience. Contact our office today to speak with a Minnesota criminal lawyer about your case.

A Minnesota Assault Lawyer can answer all of your case questions

Murder in the First Degree can also involve causing the death of someone while committing certain types of crimes, such as criminal sexual conduct in the first or second degrees or intending to cause the death of someone while committing burglary, arson, and certain other serious offenses.
