Violent Crimes

If you are charged with a violent crime, such as assault, malicious wounding, assault on a police officer, murder, or any other crime where physical violence is alleged, then you are facing a serious charge with a significant punishment.

Kevin R. Pettrey, Esq., has defended these charges time and time again, and has the experience to defend you too. These charges often stem from mistakes or situations that simply get out of control.  Perhaps you were in an argument with another, or maybe alcohol was involved.  While these are not necessarily defenses, they are explanations that can work to your benefit.  It is important that you have a lawyer that does not get caught up in the emotion that violent cases can bring, often with graphic pictures or videos and emotional testimony of a victim.  Having defended these offenses, and had them reduced or dismissed, we can take your case and put you in the best position possible.
Do not think that the government will take it easy on you in these cases, whether it is your first offense or not.  The government and courts will try to punish you severely if you are charged with one of these offenses, and you need a defense team that will stand between you and the government.
