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:

  • Homicide
  • Assault
  • Menacing
  • Kidnapping
  • Robbery
  • Burglary

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.

If you or someone you know has been accused of a violent crime, contacting a lawyer is of immediate importance. We will speak to you personally to hear your side of the story, and make sure that we gather all of the facts and evidence in order to form the best defense possible.
