Powerful Defense for a Variety of Violent Crimes
Any crime which involves the use or threat of force against another person
can be considered a violent crime. These crimes can either involve violence
as the primary objective, such as murder, as well as acts in which violence
is a means to an end. Depending on the act in question, certain violent
crime charges can expose a defendant to the possibility of life imprisonment
as well as expensive fines.
Regardless, a conviction of any type of violent crime can inflict permanent
damage to a person’s reputation and cause them to lose certain rights,
such as the right to own a firearm or apply for certain professional licenses.

violent crime cases, including:
Assault: You can be charged with assault if you attempted to inflict injury on
