Making a criminal defense plan against violent crime charges

When an individual threatens, offends or otherwise puts a New York resident in a potentially harmful situation, it is a possibility that people will respond with physical action. While the conditions of the situation will cause an individual to respond differently, when people react with violence or a threat of violence, they could face criminal charges for these actions.

At our law firm, we understand that New York residents could be accused of a violent crime for various reasons. Our goal is to help those accused to fully understand the circumstances that led to the charges, helping them design a criminal defense plan that will meet the needs and interests of the defendant. We work with our clients in an attempt to spot weaknesses in the government's case and obtain optimal results by reducing or dismissing their charges.

Violent crimes can include aggravated assault, simple assault or battery, domestic violence, gun crimes, weapon offenses, armed robbery, vehicular manslaughter, juvenile assault offenses and road rage offenses. When an individual is accused of a violent crime, it is important to fully understand the definition of the alleged crime. For example, assault and battery are often used interchangeably, but assault is considered an attempt to injure someone else, while battery is the intentional offensive or harmful touching of another person. Understanding the differences between these two crimes could help with a defendant's defense plan.
