Assault Military Lawyer

Assault is a criminal offense that involves attempting or threatening violence upon another person. Whether this attempt was successful or the threat was carried out is not an essential part of an assault case, as the offense is the attempt or threat itself and not the act. When a service member is accused of assault, he or she will face prosecution in court-martial. Rather than in a civilian criminal court, military personnel face criminal charges in military court (court-martial) under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Article 128 of this code lists out the particular offenses and penalties associated with assault.

Following are examples of assault under the UCMJ:

  • Simple assault - the attempt or threat of causing bodily harm to another person
  • Aggravated assault - assault with a deadly weapon or by means that are likely to cause serious bodily harm or death. Also includes assault committed that results in grievous bodily harm.
  • Assault and battery on a minor under 16 years old

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”

From my first visit down to my very last, the office staff and the attorney was friendly and very personable while remaining professional & ethical. They answered all my question and never once led me down the wrong path, he & his office were always very accommodating and welcoming to any & all my questions. I would definitely recommend them - - my case was a civil case (employment contract). They are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you so much!”

    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”
