Assault Defense Attorney
Under Washington state law, assault charges can quickly be escalated or piled on top of each other, based on the circumstances of the alleged incident.
If the alleged assailant caused fear for the victim of imminent bodily harm or violence, he or she can be charged with assault — even if no violent act occurred. If you have been charged with assault, or if you are under investigation for such offenses, it is important that you work with an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Defense attorney Michael E. Zanol of Wenatchee, Washington, has defended individuals for more than 40 years and fights to protect clients from the full brunt of sentencing.
Mr. Zanol handles assault charges, including:
- Assault in the fourth degree (simple assault)
- Bar fights
- Domestic violence
He will conduct his own investigation of the incident to prevent additional charges from being filed and negotiate with prosecutors and judges for the best available result. If you have any prior offenses that could complicate your case or negatively impact the outcome, he will work with prosecutors to mitigate the impact they will have on the current case.
