Violent Crimes Attorney in Commack, New York
Violent is difficult for even the best of attorneys to defend. You do not want to bargain shop for law firms when your entire future is on the line. Consider your freedom for a moment. Do you really want to put it in the hands of someone fresh out of law school? No, you want one of the best New York Violent Crimes Lawyer on your side.
Don’t wait for your case to be tried in the court of public opinion. Call today. My violent crimes team conducts pre-trial investigations looking for all possible loopholes and “outs” that can be used to negotiate with the prosecution. It is my goal to convince prosecutors to reduce sentences and (where possible) dismiss charges before the case even gets to trial. However, should a trial become imminent, I am there for you through the end.
The level of the crime involved will depend on how badly the victim was hurt, and whether a gun or other weapon was used during the commission of the crime. The severity of injury involved will often determine whether the DA will offer a plea bargain. The nature of the injuries involved will also be taken into consideration when the judge determines the sentence. If you have been charged with this or other criminal offense, it is important to speak with me as soon as possible. You could be facing serious penalties including jail time, and fines.
Hate crimes are committed against another because of the victim’s race, religion, or sexual orientation. If it is determined that the assault was committed because it was a hate crime, the charges will be enhanced or increased.
These types of cases tend to be emotional because there is an injured victim involved. The District Attorney will have the burden of proof, which is “beyond a reasonable doubt.” It will be the job of my legal team to create an aggressive defense strategy that gives you the best possible result.
It is not unusual for the District Attorney to charge a suspect with multiple offenses (known as lesser included offenses). For example, a defendant could be charged with several different degrees of this crime, some of which may be misdemeanors and some which may be felonies. This is done so that if the DA cannot prove a felony charge, he still may prove the misdemeanor charge.
If you have been charged with a criminal matter, it is vitally important to speak with me. I work to protect your legal interests, even if you are innocent of murder or manslaughter.
