Violent Crimes Cases We Handle
No matter the reason for the violent crime, prosecutors will do everything they can to paint you as a villain who must be kept away from society. Not only does that hurt your ability to build a prosperous future for yourself now, but having a criminal record containing a violent crime often bars people from being able to find employment, rent apartments, or obtain loans. You need help from a reliable attorney.
Violent crimes we defend include:
- Willful and unlawful use of force against another person
- Felonious taking of another person's personal property that they are in possession of
- non-consensual sexual intercourse accomplished by: Violence, fraud, threats, or duress.
- non-intentionally killing someone
- intentionally killing someone
No case is the same. It is important that you are able to tell your side of the story, even if the prosecution tries to label you as a dangerous criminal. Thanks to careful planning and preparation, we have helped many of our clients to have their charges reduced or even dropped.
What Is the Difference Between Murder and Manslaughter?
Murder refers to when a person knowingly and intentionally kills another person, whereas manslaughter refers to when a person's reckless or negligent actions result in the death of another person. While manslaughter is generally considered a lesser crime, both murder and manslaughter charges can result in harsh penalties that include prison time.

- You were defending someone else or someone’s property: If you see someone being robbed and you jump in to help them, it is not the same as an unprovoked attack on an unsuspecting person.
