Assault with a Deadly Weapon
Have you been charged with assault with a deadly weapon? Alejo Lugo will fight for you
If someone has accused you of intimidating or frightening them by using some type of object, you could be facing charges of Assault with a Deadly Weapon. This can happen even if it was an object that is not traditionally considered a weapon, such as a tool or a glass bottle, and even if the victim was not injured. It is sufficient for the victim to be afraid that they were going to be harmed.
Although the incident may not have seemed like a big deal to you at the time, there could be serious consequences if you end up being charged with a violent crime as a result. That is why you need to have an experienced attorney by your side who cares about your situation and can use their expertise to help you avoid conviction or keep your sentence as short as possible.

Our fifteen years of experience and knowledge of the local courts means that we can provide you with an accurate assessment of the strength of the evidence against you and create a strategy that will ensure that we reach the best possible outcome for your situation and your needs.
Possible Defenses for Assault with a Deadly Weapon
As your assault with a deadly weapon attorney, we will perform a detailed investigation into all of the evidence in your case to discover the best course of action. Depending on what we discover, it may be possible to argue that:
- You acted in self-defense or you were defending someone else
- You did not act willfully or with the required intent
- You did not actually use a deadly weapon or enough force likely to cause serious injury—therefore the victim’s fear was not reasonable
- The prosecutor will not be able to prove your charge beyond a reasonable doubt because your charge is based on unreliable evidence.
Any of these defenses could prevent your conviction or possibly convince the prosecutor to drop or reduce the charges before even going to trial.
If we believe that making a deal with the prosecutor would be in your best interests because of the circumstances of your case, we will work to get you the best possible deal using any weaknesses in the charge to convince the prosecutor to make a great deal.
