Offenses Against Persons

I've been accused of a violent crime. What do I do now?

Various crimes against other people can range from simple assault to manslaughter. These are criminal offenses against persons that generally involve some kind of violence and can carry severe penalties upon conviction. Some of these various crimes that you may be charged with include the following:

  • Domestic violence or abuse
  • Assault and battery
  • Sexual offenses
  • Negligent homicide / manslaughter
  • Murder

Many of these crimes carry felony charges and substantial penalties for conviction. Without skillful representation on your side, you could be convicted of one of these crimes and suffer from severe and possibly even life-altering punishment. Our firm's legal team is made up of skilled trial attorneys who are prepared to stand by you and pursue a favorable outcome for your situation if you choose to work with us.
