San Diego Violent Crimes Attorney

If you have been accused of a violent crime, you may be facing some very serious penalties. While California has tried to become more lenient against crime in recent years to help prevent prison crowding, violent offenders tend to be an exception to this rule as they are seen as a danger to society. If you have been accused of a violent crime, please call a San Diego criminal lawyer as soon as possible.

One of the most disappointing things about violent crime trials is the jury’s tendency to automatically side with the alleged victim. While this is mostly due to human nature, it is still a serious danger to anyone accused of a crime. Fortunately, your San Diego criminal attorney can help remind them that everyone is innocent until proven guilty and that it is their job to put biases aside to ensure you a fair trial.

There are many different types of violent crimes and each will carry a different criminal penalty. Most offenses will be punishable through some type of incarceration and a fine, but in some cases, you might even be facing the death penalty. This means your choice of San Diego criminal lawyer could literally be a matter of life and death, which is why it is so important to ensure that you always work with someone with proven experience and an excellent track record.

Our office is dedicated to doing whatever we can to help our clients fight the charges against them. The first thing we will do in any case is review the evidence to see if any rights violations took place during your arrest. If so, we will have any related evidence thrown out of the court. We will then see if there is enough evidence to actually prove your guilt, if not, we may be able to have the charges reduced so even if you lose your case, you will not face such serious consequences.

Next, we will work on developing the strongest possible defense on your behalf. We may contact forensic scientists, character witnesses, experts and other applicable persons that may help your case. If it seems that there is no possible way we can win your case, your San Diego criminal attorney may instead help you negotiate a plea bargain that will minimize the punishments you serve.

If you have been accused of a violent crime, please call our offices as soon as possible.
