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.

  • Reseable and still the best.

    “Mr. Scheuerman was great. When we spoke over the phone and he made claims that he could get me this and that. Then when we got to court thats what he did and more. Not only can he keep his word but he was fair on the price of his service. Proving that the most expensive lawyer aren't the best. I am so glad i choose him to represent me.”

  • Outstanding legal representation!

    “I was recently rear-ended on the beltway by a disbarred attorney. This person claimed that I was at fault due to road rage. The state trooper sided with the person who struck me. This resulted in 6 citations, 9 points on my driving record and $1000 in fines. If the charges would have stuck, I would have lost my license. My entire family would have been severely affected not to mention my livelihood. Thank God I chose Mark Scheuerman to represent me in court! Mark did an outstanding job examining all aspects of the charges, as well as the facts of the case. Having never experienced being in a courtroom before, he went above and beyond to prepare me for the trial. The result of his hard work was a complete acquittal. I can't speak highly enough of Attorney Scheuerman.”

  • Professional, Compassionate and an Extremely Excellent Attorney!

    “I was arrested on a Friday night and I called Mark on Saturday morning. Mark met with me that afternoon. Throughout the MVA hearing and my trial, Mark was professional, caring and compassionate. I was facing multiple traffic violations and a 2nd DUI. Needless to say, I was scared and my future uncertain. Mark explained to me what I had to do to prepare and how he would proceed with my case. Mark always made me feel like we were on this journey together. I never felt alone. At the MVA hearing, Mark saved my license and at my trial, Mark saved my life! Mark's representation of my case was so well presented the judge reduced my charge to a PPJ with no points on my driving record. I am still in amazement what Mark was able to accomplish. Mark truly cares about his clients. He is not only an excellent attorney but a wonderful caring person. I highly recommend Mark and will utilize his law firm again should the need ever arise.”

  • Mark Is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “I was really sweating my ticket for 106 in a 55. Mark showed up, handled his business and got me a FULL ACQUITTAL. This man knows the law and forces the state to meet its burden of proof, like I've never seen before. Priced very fairly and you can't get better representation, believe me, I have tried. I have used a lot of attorneys but none took care of me like this man. I will never use another, that's for sure. Thanks Mark!!!!”
