If You Have Been Accused of a Violent Crime...
You have an important decision to make. Your very freedom is at stake, and you have to decide which criminal defense lawyer will represent you. At The Sprano Law Firm, our attorneys are experienced in defending against all types of violent crime charges. We have the ability, knowledge and dedication to provide effective individual attention to every assault charge and violent crime case we handle.
Individual attention is important because all case are unique. Your situation is different than other people accused of similar crimes, and so are your goals. When developing a strategy for the defense of your case, our laywers will take your goals into account, consider all available options, and help you make the best choice possible.
How to Fight an Assault Charge or Other Violent Crime Charge
The stakes are high in these cases. When violence is involved, there is always the possibility of jail time. However, there may also be a wide variety of defense strategies that could be used. Out attorneys have the ability and experience to successfully challenge the credibility of witnesses, the reliability of forensic evidence, and more.
There are two sides to every story. If you are charged with a violent crime, it may mean that the police have only heard, or chose to believe, one side. It is the job of a good criminal defense lawyer to help present the other side. It is possible your actions can be justified by self-defense, defense of others, or mutual combat. Maybe you were present at the scene of a crime but did not participate, or maybe you are simply wrongly accused in a case of false or mistaken eyewitness testimony. Even when the evidence is against you and there is no legal excuse for what happened, you still need a good criminal defense attorney to help explain what happened by offering evidence and argument of the mitigating circumstances of the offense. Our lawyers know how to analyze and pursue all options in order to fight charges of assault and other violent crimes.
