A violent crime involves violence or the threat of violence to commit a crime, including assault, simple affray, manslaughter, or murder.
These crimes can come with harsh punishments. Typically there are orders for no contact that, if violated, could land you in jail.

Frequently Asked Questions
I know I'm guilty of committing the crime, and there's no way I'm going to get off. Why do I need a lawyer?
It is extremely important to have a lawyer advise you through the criminal process. A good criminal defense attorney can see issues in your case that may not be as evident to the untrained eye. These issues can be the difference between guilt and innocence. Absent any issues, an attorney can craft a plea bargain that best suits your needs, therefore avoiding jail time, supervised probation, or unnecessary convictions.
