Considering self-defense in a violent crime case

There is hardly ever a need for things to turn violent, but there are also many instances in which you just can't help but allow things to go there. When you do have to get violent, there is a good chance that you are going to end up facing criminal charges for those actions. This is never a good thing, but it can be downright disheartening when you were merely trying to defend yourself or someone else when you had to get violent.

We understand that you probably didn't mean for things to turn out the way they did, but you might have felt like you didn't have any other option. We can help you work on a defense strategy when this happens.

One option that you might have is to claim self-defense. There are specific points that must be made in these cases. We can help you determine if this is a possible defense in your case so that you can determine if this is the direction you are going to go.

As you are making plans for your defense, you need to think about what is riding on it. Your freedom is one of these points. Violent crimes often come with considerable time in prison if you are convicted. This could mean that you are ripped away from your family and taken from the life you've built up. It could also mean that you will have to fight to reintegrate into society when your time in prison is over. You might have to deal with being on parole at that time. This can all make your life very difficult.
