Joliet Assault, Battery & Domestic Violence Lawyer

Assault and battery are two separate, but related, crimes under Illinois law. Assault refers to placing another person in reasonable fear that you are going to harm him or her. Battery generally refers to the physical act of harming someone.

A conviction of either offense can permanently mar your criminal record. Even a misdemeanor conviction for simple assault or battery can have a lasting impact on your reputation and employment prospects.
