Los Angeles Violent Crime Attorney

Have You Been Accused of a Violent Crime?

An offense that imprisons or brings harm to another person in any manner can be prosecuted as a crime of violence. If you just have the intention to hurt someone or made an attempt to do so that was unsuccessful, it is still a violent crime. These offenses can be committed against property as well as other persons and are considered the worst of crimes.

Murder, assault and battery, domestic violence, kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, sex crimes such as rape, manslaughter, robbery, burglary, carjacking and even the white collar crime of embezzlement can all be charged as violent crimes. Sentencing after conviction will be based on any previous criminal record and circumstances which are special to your case. The penalties can be loss of your driving privileges, lifetime registration as a sex offender, steep fines, community service, a "strike" per California's three strikes law and probation. If convicted, you will be incarcerated and in the worst of situations, you may face a life sentence or the death penalty.

Defense against Violent Crime Charges

We begin by striving to mount effective challenges to your arrest. If the arrest was improper, it can be a fatal flaw in the case against you. Some acts of violence are done out of self-defense and you may have acted in a wholly legal manner in order to protect yourself. Your situation may have been one where you had no criminal intention but another was harmed accidently. We operate with the idea that through our research and investigation, we will understand your case and situation better than the police or a prosecutor and can use this to produce a favorable result.

If you are accused of a violent crime, quickly contact a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney from our firm for assistance. Free initial case evaluations are available.
