Defense Attorney for Violent Crimes in Los Angeles
Trustworthy & Diligent Legal Counsel
Violent crime refers to those crimes which are often the most serious in
our criminal justice system and carry the heaviest potential punishments.
With the exception of some sex crimes, these are the cases that most often
go to trial because there is so much at stake for both sides.
Some of the better known violent crimes include:
- Homicide, Murder or Manslaughter
- Assault (with or without a deadly weapon)
- Sexual Assault/Rape
- Criminal Threats
The Complexity of Violent Crimes
Make no mistake, these are the most serious and complex cases in our criminal
justice system. They often involve multiple witnesses, police officers
and defendants, which can lead to several different accounts of what happened.
Furthermore, because they are less routine compared to charges such as
Driving Under the Influence or Domestic Violence, there is less consistency
from courtroom to courtroom as different judges and prosecutors may hold
very different opinions on what is fair. As such, the law affords ample
room to an overzealous, young district attorney or an inexperienced judge
to hand down a very harsh punishment for what someone else might think
is a relatively minor offense.
Our Approach to Violent Crimes
With so much at stake, we cannot emphasize enough the importance of having
an attorney you feel understands your position, is absolutely trustworthy
and hardworking, and who is not afraid to take a case all the way to trial.
Creative negotiation or long-standing relationships will not get a client
very far in these matters, which is why, even if an individual does not
hire the Law Office of Benjamin Kanani, we
strongly recommend that you hire a private attorney who is diligent, experienced
and skilled in a courtroom because it could very well mean a difference
of several years of jail time or the very course of your life.
If you or someone you know is being charged with a violent or serious crime, please
give us a call at (310) 702-9701 with any questions or concerns. Given the gravity of
these matters, even if you don't retain us, we feel it is essential
you speak to an honest and experienced attorney about your case.
