Felonious Assault Attorneys in Michigan
Fighting for Clients in Royal Oak & Surrounding Areas
Felonious assault, also called assault with a dangerous weapon, occurs when you assault another person with a gun, knife, brass knuckles, or some other weapon that has the potential of causing serious physical injury or death. Assault means that you put another person in immediate fear of harm. Therefore, simply pointing a knife at someone in a manner that makes them think that they may be stabbed satisfies the definition of a felonious assault.
Proving Felonious Assault
Remember, the prosecutor must prove each and every element of felonious assault beyond a reasonable doubt to obtain a conviction.
There are four elements to felonious assault that the prosecutor must prove:
- You must have either attempted to commit a battery or did something that would cause a reasonable person to fear an immediate battery.
- You intended to either injure another person or make another person fear that you were going to.
- You had the ability to commit a battery, you appeared to have the ability to commit a battery, or you thought you had the ability to commit a battery.
- You committed the assault while using a dangerous weapon.
Felonious Assault Penalties
If convicted of felonious assault, you will be facing:
- A 4-year felony
- Fines up to $6,000
- Up to 150 hours of community service
It is for this reason that hiring an experienced felonious assault attorney in Michigan is imperative.

Mr. Morris happened to be the second lawyer that I contacted. The first lawyer said he would take my case for a $10K retainer fee and that I had a long road ahead of me. The next day, I contacted Mr. Morris and knew from our first conversation that I was in good hands with his representation. Stop shopping around and hire Barton Morris today!
