Santa Ana Lawyer for Assault Cases

In the City of Santa Ana, people are charged with assault and/or battery every day. Although it's a common occurrence, a conviction could lead to either a felony or misdemeanor charge. However, just because you've been arrested for assault doesn't mean you have to be convicted. Orange County assault lawyer Lauren K. Johnson has the knowledge and experience that gets results. She has earned her reputation in the Santa Ana community as an outstanding lawyer by successfully defending her clients.

There are a number of defenses that Orange County criminal defense attorney Lauren K. Johnson can present on your behalf. One defense might be that assault requires the "present ability" to commit a violent injury upon another. This means that you are not guilty of assault if your act can't be carried out. Another defense could be that you had a reasonable belief that you were about to be seriously hurt; so in that situation you are allowed to "reasonably" fight back. And yet another defense might be that you didn't "willfully" intend to commit a violent injury upon another.

Whatever your defense, it's important for you to be represented by Santa Ana assault lawyer Lauren K. Johnson. She knows that assault charges are often falsely reported, and has the expertise to prevent the prosecution from proving their case. Each type of assault carries with it a specific penalty, if convicted. These could range from six months in jail and a $1,000 fine for simple assault, to spending many years in prison for more serious offenses. So whether you've been charged with Making Threats, Assault, Battery, Assault With a Firearm or Assault with a Deadly weapon, call the Law Office of Lauren K. Johnson at (949) 622-5522 today.

Lauren Johnson was amazing. She explained everything in ways that were easily understood, & answered all of my question. She was respectful, but also open & honest. She started work on my case the first day we met & got results quickly. She demonstrated passion, concern, and showed true feeling for my situation. My expectations were greatly exceeded. I would say she has an incredible attention for detail, & has a real dedication to her work. Lauren Johnson would be my first recommendation to any of my family or friends similarly in need of legal assistance. - Heather

I researched a lot of attorneys and had met with two attorneys before speaking with Ms. Johnson and retaining her. I was facing serious charges that could not be on my record, due to my job and was really scared. I felt hopeless & thought my life was ruined...until I found Ms. Johnson... - A criminal defense client (drug case)

Lauren K. Johnson was my saving grace. I naively thought you were innocent until proven guilty. However, I soon discovered that CPS and family court does not see things that way... - Mrs. G, a CPS client
