Proven Results Through Years of Experience

If you or someone you care about has been charged with an assaultive crime, you will want the representation of Jeff West who has defended thousands of criminal cases and has decades of experience successfully defending assaultive charges.  You will not want to give up and accept the view of the charging prosecutor concerning intent, injury or weapon, and you will want an attorney who is capable and experienced at presenting your best defense.  You are presumed innocent until a prosecutor proves guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.  Let us fight to protect your innocence.


Any of the assault crimes listed above can upon conviction result in severe penalties including imprisonment.  Some may believe that, if a person uses force against another person and causes injury, such an actor deserves to be charged with a crime and punished; this view is too narrow and focuses on the wrong details.   The use of force in lawful self-defense, even when it results in injury or death to an assailant, is justified and not a crime.  We have successfully defended cases charged based on all levels of injury including death.  Self-defense cases are a personal favorite of Attorney Jeff West.
