Assault & Battery Law

Miami criminal attorney Albert Quirantes handles assault and battery cases ranging from fairly simple bar fights and confrontations to domestic violence and assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

Although most often linked to assault, battery is a separate crime which describes the act of striking someone on purpose with the expectations of harming or disrespecting them. Accidental contact, no matter how severe, is not considered battery.


Assault on the other hand, occurs when an action or a threat places someone in imminent fear of bodily injury or death. Unlike battery, which occurs when there is physical contact with the victim, assault does

not involve physical contact. You may assault someone with no physical contact. Some defenses to these crimes are self-defense, defense of others and defense of property.


If you have been charged with any of these crimes an assault or battery, or both, an experienced criminal defense lawyer could mean the difference of serving jail time or receiving probation or fines.


Generally speaking, if the victim has been actually touched by the person committing the crime, then a battery has occurred. If the victim has not actually been touched, but only threatened, then the crime is considered to be an assault.


The Law Office of Albert Quirantes handles assault and battery cases which include but are not limited to the following:


  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon

  • Assault

  • Aggravated battery with a deadly weapon

  • Domestic violence

  • Disorderly conduct

  • Felony battery

If a deadly weapon is involved in your assault and battery charge, the judge must follow mandatory sentencing guidelines that will dramatically impact your future.


At the Law Office of Albert Quirantes, we have extensive experience helping clients understand the guidelines and how these guidelines will affect their case.


Domestic violence, a specific type of assault and battery carries hefty penalties that can impact other areas of your life such as child custody proceedings and job opportunities.


Also, Florida has created a statutory offense called felony battery in addition to an aggravated battery which is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.


Let Attorney Albert Quirantes determine the level of your assault and battery charge based on his many years of service as an attorney in the Florida criminal justice system.
