Violent Crimes Defense From Experienced Trial Lawyers

Violent crimes span a broad range of offenses. Federal law, for example, defines a “crime of violence” to be an offense that has as an element the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force against the person or property of another, or any felony that involves a substantial risk that physical force against the person or property of another may be used in the course of committing the offense.

Depending on the nature of the crime, conviction for a felony violent crime may entail severe penalties and collateral consequences such as an increased sentencing guidelines range in the future.

Our violent crimes practice includes federal and state charges such as:

  • Assault and battery
  • Aggravated assault and battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual assault
  • Weapons crimes
  • Robbery and armed robbery
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Vehicular homicide

If you are being charged or investigated for such an offense, it is important to meet with a criminal defense attorney to discuss possible defenses you may have. Perhaps your actions constituted self defense, or maybe the police simply arrested the wrong person. Our lawyers can discuss with you what defenses might apply to the facts of your case.
