Schenectady Violent Crime Lawyers

Providing Serious Defense for Serious Charges

Violent crime charges are among the most destructive criminal accusations a person can get, as these charges could ruin your life whether or not you get convicted. A violent crime accusation alone is enough to tarnish your livelihood and reputation, creating a host of personal, professional, and social consequences. Society views violent offenders as the “bad guys,” so it is not surprising that people perceive suspects as the bad guys, even though they are merely suspects and not convicted offenders.

Types of Violent Crimes We Handle

Any unlawful act that involves harming or threatening someone with violence is considered a violent crime. Even if you don’t lay a finger on someone, the perceived threat of violence alone is enough to warrant a violent crime accusation. Thus, various offenses are deemed violent crimes, such as:

  • Armed robbery
  • Arson
  • Assault and battery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Aggravated battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Rape/sexual assault

Our Schenectady violent crime lawyers understand what’s at stake in your life. Your violent crime charges could cause you to lose your job, housing, financial support, and relationships with loved ones. That’s why you can count on us to help mitigate the actual and potential risks of your case every step of the way, as we are dedicated to helping you come out of this situation unscathed.

Unfortunately, violent crime charges can turn into convictions if the prosecution meets its burden of proof and a jury finds you guilty. Depending on your specific charges, you could be looking at jail time and hundreds and thousands of dollars in fines. Not to mention, you could be ordered to attend counseling on your dime and complete a certain number of community service hours.

But one can argue that the worst part of a violent crime conviction is that it appears on your criminal record. If that is the case for you, your criminal record will deter employers from giving you a job, landlords from giving you housing, credit agencies from giving you loans, and universities from accepting you into their programs. These are some examples of the barriers you could face with a criminal record.

Arrested for a Violent Crime? Don’t Go at It Alone.

It is normal to feel anxious, frightened, and overwhelmed at the thought of your violent crime charges. But don’t make the mistake of letting these emotions distract you from the bigger picture. Your case may be defendable, and we’re here to fight for that possibility in your case.
