Have you facing criminal charges for a violent crime? Violent crimes are offenses that involve the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force against another individual. Violent crimes also include other offenses that are felonies and by their nature, involve a substantial risk of using physical force against another person. A conviction for a violent crime involves harsh consequences that affect numerous aspects of the defendant's life, including their ability to find gainful employment, housing, the right to own a firearm, and to vote. If you have been charged with a violent crime, you should waste no time in contacting our Fort Lauderdale criminal lawyers for aggressive defense.
We can act quickly to review the details of your situation, gather all pertinent evidence, and prepare a strong defense on your behalf. When you are facing the possibility of a felony conviction, years behind bars, and thousands in fines, you cannot afford to forgo a strong defense.
We can defend you if you have been charged with any of the following violent crimes:
The punishment for violent crime convictions vary based on whether the defendant is a repeat offender, where the offense took place, or whether a firearm or other weapon was used during the offense. For example, a misdemeanor assault becomes a third-degree felony assault when committed with a weapon. The variation in penalties is why it's so crucial to provide your side of the story.
Threats of violence to a person, from domestic abuse to robbery, are classified as “simple assault,” and are the least severe violent crime charges in Florida. However, a conviction for a violent crime is a permanent part of your criminal record, so even a conviction here could cost you a lifetime of employment or living opportunities. Defending your innocence is vital, no matter the case.
