you need an attorney to defend you and fight for every possible advantage
in your case, including dismissed charges, reduced charges or an acquittal
at trial. Visit the pages below for more information about the types of
violent crime cases we handle:
Domestic violence is the act of using violence against someone in your
home. It is typically generalized as violence between a husband and wife,
or people living together in a romantic relationship. Domestic violence
is seriously frowned upon and once the police are called, an arrest will
almost always be made. Domestic violence can result in jail.
Murder is defined as unlawfully taking someone else's life. Murder
is an extremely severe charge, and under the right circumstances can even
result in the death penalty. Manslaughter is unintentionally causing someone's
death, but even an unintentional death can be tried as murder if it occurred
while the defendant was perpetrating a felony crime.
Assault is the threat of causing unlawful bodily harm along with the apparent
ability to carry it out. For example, the term "assault with a deadly
weapon" means that a threat was made with a deadly weapon to back
the threat up. This is a serious offense that can result in jail and go
on your criminal record.
Battery is the actual unlawful touching of another person. Any physical
violence that is perpetrated against a victim is battery. Assault and
battery are often charged together because it is likely for someone to
threaten violence, and then act on that threat. Battery can be a felony
or misdemeanor charge, depending upon the circumstances.
