Crimes of Violence

Winning Violent Crimes Cases

No reasonable person accused of a violent crime, whether it's murder, assault & battery, armed robbery, rape, or domestic violence, is unaware of the seriousness of his circumstances and the need to retain the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. These charges, depending on the type and severity, can result in penalties that range from lofty fines to years in prison. You could lose your right to possess firearms or step foot in your own home.

To Whom Can You Entrust Your Liberty?

Not every criminal defense lawyer, never mind every general practitioner, is capable of successfully defending an individual accused of a violent crime. Prosecutors are often highly experienced, tough, and seasoned trial lawyers. To maximize your chances of an acquittal or a fairly negotiated plea, your defense lawyer must possess these same qualities – and more.

He has defended individuals of accused of serious felonies, including homicide, attempted murder, rape, domestic violence, assault and battery, kidnapping, and weapons charges. His experience includes work as a prosecutor, judge pro tem, and court commissioner.
