Aggravated assault can include, among other things, Assault With a Deadly Weapon and Assault With Intent to Rape, Maim or Murder. Whereas a fist fight would be considered a simple assault, assaults involving deadly force are considered far more serious and carry much more severe prison sentences.
Violent crimes are taken very seriously and typically involve prison terms and high bail amounts -- or even no bail amounts. The stakes are higher in violent crimes than in almost any other type of criminal charges.Defenses
One of the keys to a successful violent crime defense is pre-trial investigation. Effective investigation can uncover prosecution missteps, identify exculpatory evidence and allow the use of tools such as DNA analysis and polygraph tests.
The prosecution has experienced investigators whose job it is to build a case against you while providing you the services of an overburdened public defender to save your life.
Mounting a successful defense requires defense team, not just a single attorney. Prosecutors generally do not pursue cases that they do not feel they can prove in trial. This is why it is critical to dig even deeper into your case than the prosecution and inject the reasonable doubt that will let you win in the courtroom if necessary.Why Hire Us?
