Brooklyn Violent Crime Lawyer

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes are treated seriously by both the court system and society. Significant jail time, a permanent criminal record, job loss, the inability to hold certain jobs or rent certain apartments, prohibitions against owning firearms and loss of reputation are just a few of the common consequences of being convicted of a violent crime.
These cases always require an aggressive and experienced New York City criminal defense lawyer. At Uriel Criminal Defense PC, we believe anyone facing criminal charges deserves immediate access to an experienced New York City criminal defense attorney. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for a free and confidential consultation to discuss your rights.

  • Murder, homicide and manslaughter
  • Aggravated vehicular homicide
  • Rape
  • Sexual assault
  • Assault and battery

NYC Violent Crimes Defense

These charges are best handled by an experienced New York City defense attorney with the knowledge and resources to defend clients at each and every stage of the legal process. Serious prison time and life-long stigma are often associated with conviction and prosecutors are often reluctant to offer significant reductions of such charges. Even those who have reason to believe they are under investigation, but who have not yet been charged, should reach out to an experienced criminal defense firm at the earliest stages of such cases.

Your chosen criminal defense lawyer must have a reputation for aggressive defense, and a proven track record in the courtroom, in order to offer the best defense throughout the process, including:

  • Advocacy that could prevent charges from being filed.
  • Challenging evidence and the conduct of police during pre-trial motions.
  • Challenging all evidence and witness testimony.
  • Challenging search warrants and probable cause.
  • Seeking a reduction or dismissal of the charges.
  • Challenging each element of a criminal charge.
  • Preparing your case for trial.
Prosecutors must prove each element of each charge. When they fail, a defendant cannot be convicted. The progressive nature of violent crime laws in New York mean any reduction of charges can significantly reduce penalties for both a current and future conviction. In particular, New York’s three-strikes law mandates an indeterminate life sentence for conviction of a third violent felony, which often subjects defendants to decades behind bars for conviction of a third offense, even if a relatively minor charge.
Protection orders can be sought by an alleged victim or ordered by the court. Sanctions vary, but can prevent a defendant from visiting an alleged victim’s home or otherwise contacting an alleged victim. Alarmingly, protection orders sought by alleged victims in civil court require no proof, only allegations of the victim that you acted unlawfully or otherwise made an alleged victim fearful. Such orders can last until a case concludes, often a year or longer.
Prosecutors often overcharge defendants, making a plea "deal" look appealing, even if they could not have secured a conviction on the most serious charges. It’s important to remember that the state can charge you with whatever it wants. What matters is whether you are convicted in a court of law.
