Charges stemming from assault allegations could range from the level of a simple misdemeanor or as great as a felony. The alleged assault of a police officer or the use of a weapon are two situations that can add substantial penalties and complication to your case. Hiring the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you appropriately respond to these complexities to ensure a fair and timely legal process.


Assault involving intimate partners (even if recently separated), parents, children or other relatives can qualify as domestic assault. Charges that are of this nature can carry mandatory minimum penalties in addition to domestic abuse programs and no-contact orders. 

Unfortunately, instances of domestic violence are all too common. In these cases, one or both spouses or intimate partners have engaged in abusive behavior toward each other, often leaving a visible injury. In other cases, children or the elderly have been exposed to physical harm or neglect. While most of these charges qualify as misdemeanors, prosecutors sometimes press felony charges given the severity of the crime, the age or physical condition of the victim, and other factors.

Whatever the case may be, these sensitive matters require aggressive representation. Viner Law P.C. is here to consult with you about your domestic violence case. Our law firm specializes in domestic violence law in Cedar Rapids, IA. For compassionate legal counsel, schedule a consultation at our office.
