In short, we will work closely with you to come up with a plan based on your specific charges.
Proving an Intentional Act of Violence
Before charging somebody with a violent crime such as domestic assault, battery or homicide, the district attorney's office must prove that the injury or death was the result of an intentional act of violence. There are several degrees of assault and manslaughter. In cases of first-degree assault or homicide, the prosecutor will have to show clear evidence that a weapon was used with enough force to cause the injury or death. Our law firm will use every legal option to help you get your charges dismissed or reduced to the lowest possible charge.
