Brooklyn Violent Crime Lawyer
Respected Criminal Defense Representation in New York
An accusation of a violent crime can have devastating effects on your life, even before the legal process is concluded. Your family and social relationships may be compromised. Your co-workers may avoid you. You may be forced to move out of your home and you could even lose your job, the custody of your children, and your immigration status. Violent crimes carry the heaviest social stigma and most severe punishments because they involve an alleged lack of respect or value for human life. Law enforcement and prosecutors are quick to move against those who have been accused and arrested, convinced they are doing a public service.

What are the Penalties for Violent Crimes?
The type of crime committed, along with pertinent facts, circumstances, and evidence, will dictate the charges brought against you. Charges can range from a simple misdemeanor to a first-degree felony punishable by up to life in prison. Any felony conviction will incur the potential for a year or more of incarceration along with fines and probation. Furthermore, a conviction will land you with a permanent criminal record that can damage your ability to find employment, housing, loans, and more.
Timing Is Essential in Your Violent Crime Defense
In most cases, crimes that involve any extent of violence are addressed by responsive, instead of investigatory, means. This means that arrests are usually abrupt so the accused never has a chance to explain their side of the story. Mastering the art of timing in this regard is essential, because you have to know when and how to explain your version of the incident to the right people. A licensed attorney will guide you through the judicial process from start to finish in order to ensure you do not fall short in this regard.
