Major Types of Violent Crimes
There are varying types and degrees of violent crime, each with their own unique consequences to navigate in court. The major ones are:
No matter which type of violent crime the defendant is accused of, our lawyers will follow the same process: Get their side of the story, gather and analyze evidence, and build a defense.
Domestic Violence as an Additional Charge
Domestic violence is not a criminal charge on its own, but is considered a sentence enhancer for other criminal charges. In violent crimes, if domestic violence may also be involved then our lawyers will consider both parts of the case when building a defense.
If a defendant is convicted of a violent crime where domestic violence is involved, there are further consequences than the initial conviction. For example, having domestic violence on their criminal record will bar a person from legally being able to own a firearm, and may make it more difficult for them to get a job or rent or buy a home.
