Violent Crimes

Nobody ever expects to be arrested for a violent crime, yet sometimes a night out ends in a bar fight, an argument with a loved one to turn into a domestic abuse charge, or a moment of anger escalates beyond control.  Good people find themselves waking up in an orange jail uniform and wondering how things went so wrong.  Whether you were falsely accused, trapped in a bad relationship, or simply trying to protect yourself, being charged with a violent crime can change your life forever.  Many violent crimes result in jail or prison sentences and nearly all convictions for domestic abuse permanently eliminate a person’s right to own a firearm, gun hunt, or serve in the military.  In some cases, you can be prevented from living in your own home, maintaining a professional license, or even seeing your children.
