Second Degree Assault

Proven Defense from a Criminal Defense Lawyers in Baltimore

There are three types of second degree assault in Maryland: (1) Intent to Frighten - intentionally frightening another person with the threat of immediate offensive physical contact or physical harm, (2) Attempted Battery – Attempting to cause offensive physical contact or physical harm, and (3) Battery – Causing offensive physical contact to another person. A conviction for assault carries a maximum penalty of up to 10 years imprisonment, a fine up to $2,500 and a misdemeanor on your permanent record.

Second degree assault is the most commonly-charged violent crime in Maryland, with thousands of cases filed every year. Without proper legal representation, you will face an uphill battle in fighting your charges. The mere accusation that you have committed assault is enough to taint your reputation, but a conviction can change the course of your life as you know it and put a misdemeanor on your permanent record. This charge can make securing future employment or residences more difficult.

    “One to describe Mark's representation was AWESOME! Being a first time offender for driving while under a suspended drivers license Mark gave me more than enough assurance that everything was going to be okay. I was so nervous about going to court. When I reached the court room Mark had already settled everything with the states attorney office. Having my case dismissed! I am truly impressed by Mark's professionalism. He was very knowledgeable also educated me throughout the entire process. I am so thankful Mark represented me. He showed me why it is important to have a lawyer represent you. When you could be facing some maximum penalties including jail time. I will be sure to spread his good work.”

  • I felt very at ease with Mark representing me.

    “I am very pleased with the way in which Mark handled my case. I had a speeding ticket which was 29 miles over the speed limit. Mark was very prompt in returning my telephone call and explained what would happen once we got into court and also gave me very valuable information while at court and prior to going to court. I ended up receiving probation before judgment. My fine was reduced from $160 to $50 + $25.50 in court costs. I felt very at ease with Mark representing me and will definitely use him in the future. My family also wants his name and number for any future situations they may come across.”

  • The best there is

    “Facing 4 charges against me, including DWI and DUI which if charged I would lose my job. Mark was excited from Day 1 that we have a great case and he is going to do what he can to make sure that we get the best outcome for me, he gave me very detailed instructions on how to help better my case so that we can be prepared in court. Long story short, we beat the case and it was a complete acquittal. Thank you for everything Mark, I recommend you to anybody.”
