Defending Against Violent Crimes
Violent crimes may refer to anything from a bar fight or domestic dispute to an armed robbery or homicide. The greater the level of violence, the more severe the potential consequences of a conviction. However, all charges and allegations of violence are serious and carry serious penalties.

Take Full Advantage Of Your Rights And Defenses
Anyone suspected of a crime has the right to remain silent and to consult with an attorney. There will be a time to tell your side of the story, but it is not when you are questioned by police. Their job is to get a confession or statements they can use to cast doubt on your version of events. With the possibility of jail, a felony record and all the other consequences, you need someone to step in to protect your rights and challenge the government’s case.
The approach to defending against a violent criminal charge depends on the circumstances. Self-defense or false eyewitness reports may be a defense against assault or murder charges. The accuser may have a motive to lie. There may be other suspects or other evidence the police are ignoring. Constitutional issues may also be raised, such as when evidence may have been collected in violation of your rights. My first step after taking your case would be to thoroughly review the circumstances surrounding your charge. Then, my next course of action is challenging all of the evidence brought forth against you.
The circumstances of your case will also dictate whether to negotiate with the prosecutor or fight the charges in court. Let me help you make the best decision at each stage of the legal process.
