Whether you committed the crime or someone is falsely accusing you of committing a violent crime, we defend you in court. We offer our legal defense services in Los Angeles County, and all across Southern California. California is one of the harshest states, and it punishes violent crimes very seriously. So, if you’ve been charged with a violent crime, such as assault, battery, kidnapping, murder, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, or carjacking, you should immediately contact the experienced violent crime attorneys at The H Law Group. Our attorneys have experience defending those who are charged with committing violent crimes in the State of California.
Many times there is insufficient evidence against the individual charged with a violent crime, such as assault or murder, nevertheless, the prosecution still pursues criminal charges. In this event, we will attempt to have the charges against you dismissed. If the charges cannot be dismissed we will do our best to negotiate the best possible plea deal for you. Other times, witnesses can make mistakes in identifying the perpetrator of the crime, or the witness is simply lying. We will try to find holes in the prosecution’s case, and we will use the holes to argue for dismissal or a favorable plea deal. We will investigate the case thoroughly so that we have the correct facts. Once we have the correct facts, our violent crime lawyers will defend you to the best of their ability.
Here is a list of the violent crimes that we often find our clients charged with:
In California, an individual who is convicted of a violent crime may have a strike added to his record. California’s Three Strike Law has set out a list of violent and serious felonies that are punished very seriously. If an individual is convicted of a three-strikes crime, he must serve a minimum of 80% of his prison sentence. Also, a person who’s had two (2) previous strikes, must serve 25 years to life in prison if he gets a third strike. Crimes enumerated under the three strikes law are punished seriously because they place the lives of others at risk, the government wants to curb the number of serious crimes by instituting harsher punishments. If you’ve been charged with a violent crime in the State of California, you should contact the experienced violent crime attorneys at The H Law Group.
Take, for example, murder. Murder under California Penal Code Section 187 is the intentional killing of another person. Murder, obviously, is one of the most violent crimes that a person can commit. Murder convictions can range from fifteen (15) years to life in California State Prison. Nevertheless, murder is one of the crimes enumerated under California’s three-strikes law, so if you’re convicted of another crime, later on, your second conviction will result in a much harsher punishment.
Many of the crimes that take place in California involve robberies, assault, and narcotics. If you’ve been charged with or are being investigated for a violent crime such as the ones we just mentioned, you should be aware of the three-strikes law. This is so because if you’re convicted of crimes after a first strike crime, the punishments get tougher and tougher. For example, if you were convicted of assault with a deadly weapon in 2015, and in 2020 you’re convicted of robbery, if the sentence for robbery is 5 years for a first-timer, for you it might be double since you’ve already committed a first strike. As such, you should find yourself an experienced criminal defense attorney who has knowledge of the three-strikes law that may apply to your case to defend you.
As far as punishment goes, violent crimes carry heavy jail time, expensive fines, and sometimes restitution. So, if you’re facing any criminal charges for committing a violent crime, such as battery, assault, murder, or kidnapping, you should contact an experienced Los Angeles attorney to represent you. The H Law Group has a team of experienced criminal defense attorneys who will help you fight the criminal charges against you.
Because violent crimes have increased in numbers, law enforcement agencies and the legislature have enacted tougher penalties for those who commit them. Also, there has been a lot of public pressure for Southern California and Los Angeles to become tougher on crime. As such, the punishments are harsher. So, if you want the best chance at beating your charges or having them reduced, you should contact attorneys for violent crimes in Los Angeles at The H Law Group to represent you.
