New York City Violent Crime Attorney

Criminal Defense for Assault, Manslaughter, Rape & Robbery

A violent crime is an offense involving the use of violence or threat of harm during the commission of a crime. Forcible rape, for example, is a violent sex crime that occurs when an offender uses force or the threat of violence to engage in sexual intercourse with a victim. Violent theft crimes, such as robbery, occur when force and/or threats are used to take another's property from their person or immediate vicinity. Other violent crimes involve violence as the intended act itself, such as assault, aggravated assault, manslaughter, and murder.

In the most serious violent crime, life in prison is not out of the question, and judges regularly assign the harshest penalties to defendants convicted of these types of offenses. Considering what is at stake in the face of violent crime allegations, your choice in legal representation is of the utmost importance.

Penalties for Violent Crimes

Penalties for violent crimes can vary greatly, but are among the most severely sentenced of any offenses within the New York legal system. Due to the damaging and hash consequences of this type of crime, anyone who is accused of such an offense should consult a proven criminal defense lawyer before doing anything else. Time is of the essence in cases where the chips may already be stacked against you, and every moment counts when building a solid defense against these charges. Going into any criminal proceedings without a trusted professional at your side could mean certain failure, a guilty verdict, and years in prison, so do not delay in getting a lawyer on your side.
