As proud members of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, we relentlessly pursue justice for our clients.

Understanding Your Assault Charges

Threatening or intimidating someone can be seen as grounds for a simple assault charge, which is a misdemeanor offense. A conviction for such a crime typically carries up to 60 days in jail, up to $500 in fines, 60 days of probation, and restitution to the victim if injuries occurred.

Penalties are enhanced if the alleged victim is one of the following while on the job:

  • Law enforcement officer or fire fighter
  • Licensed security officer
  • Code inspectors
  • Public transport employee
  • Emergency medical care provider
  • Parking enforcement officer
  • Employee at a detention center or commitment facility
 

If one of these individuals is involved, the penalties increase to up to 1 year in jail, up to $1,000 in fines, a year-long probation, and restitution for any injuries. When a charge includes the use of a deadly weapon, you could be facing aggravated assault accusations, which is a felony that carries up to 5 years in prison and up to $5,000 in fines with a conviction.

Words cannot describe the outstanding jobMr. Gorman did on my husband’s case. The case was not simple or easy, it was just filled with terrible circumstances. An event that could have ruined the lives of our family for years to come. He somehow was able to get some extremely serious charges reduced significantly.....the outcome was far better than we were ever expecting or hoping for. If he at times cannot get back to you right away, it is because he is working his magic. We will never forget him and will forever be thankful to him.read more

Mr. Gorman is nothing short of exceptional. I went to Jeff as a second opinion as I didn't feel my lawyer had my best interest at heart. Upon consultation, I immediately hired Jeff. He was professional, precise, and extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of law. He is nothing short a miracle. Needless to say, I received no jail (facing up to 30 years). Mr. Gorman and staff always kept me informed and fought for me. I would highly recommend him. It doesn't get any better than him.read more

Mr. Gorman is not only a great attorney by in my book, he’s a magician. He defended me on a “VERY SERIOUS” case with multiple charges (I will not mentioned here). From a 25 year sentence in which 17 would had been minimum mandatory, he managed to have serious charges dropped/abandone and was able to get me a deal that I was able to do at home. I hired him on a VOP (Violation Of Probation) for the same case and he was able to have the court reinstate my probation as we had proof that I in fact did not violate probation. Lastly, I hired him once again on an accident case in which I got injured and his attorney, Erika was able to get top dollar for such. I could go on with positive feedback. Overall, I’m 100% satisfied from day one. I won’t call any other attorney as he has proven to work for you every step of the way.read more
