Assault and Battery is an expansive crime that includes anything from a punch during a bar fight to serious sexual assault. However, any assault charge can affect your future. Leon J. Mezzetti, Jr. and his expert legal team understand how these charges can give you a criminal record and prevent you from living a normal life. That is why we put our best effort into defending them, no matter how serious they appear at first.
Our principal Alameda County assault and battery lawyer, Leon J. Mezzetti, Jr., has more than 30 years of experience defending clients throughout Northern California. He has the knowledge and skill to help people accused of the following assault and battery crimes:

Combating Overzealous Assault and Battery Charges
If punishment is inevitable, at least it should fit the crime. Too often, a district attorney will get overzealous and categorize an assault and battery incident as more serious than it actually was. This is an abuse of power and we will do all we can to make the judge and prosecution see the whole picture.
Mr. Mezzetti is a former prosecutor who understands how the prosecution works assault and battery cases. He uses this knowledge to present a strong defense. We will look for holes in the prosecution's case and present those holes during negotiations or, if necessary, in court.
