If you have been arrested and charged with a violent crime, it is critically important to retain a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. If your criminal defense lawyer can get an early start building a defense against your charges, you have a better chance of avoiding or minimizing the negative consequences of a conviction.
Experienced criminal defense lawyer for violent offenses
In order for me to give you an educated opinion about the most likely outcome in your case, I will need to know the answers to a lot of questions about the incident that led to the charges, such as:
- Who was involved?
- Where did the incident occur?
- Were alcohol or drugs involved?
- Were weapons involved?
- Can you or another party argue self-defense?
- Were you really involved or were you a bystander?
- Who were the witnesses? Are they believable?
- Did a party who was initially justified in using force use excessive force?
Based on the answers to those questions — and on the information I uncover during an independent investigation — I will develop a defense strategy that is most likely to be successful in minimizing the penalties that come your way.
If I can, I will negotiate with the prosecutor’s office — either for a dismissal or for a lesser charge, suspended sentence or probation. Depending on the facts of your case, we may decide to take your case to trial and fight for a not-guilty verdict or a lesser charge that carries a lesser penalty.
