Violent Crimes

Bay Area Violent Crime Defense Lawyer

Providing a Vigorous Legal Defense for Violent Crime Charges

Police and state officials are particularly focused on reducing violent crime. They do not want crime statistics to showcase their cities in a negative light, so they are cracking down. Unfortunately, this mission to eliminate violence sometimes results in the police taking a disproportionately severe stance against offenders or even arresting people who have not done anything wrong.

Some of the reasons police may arrest or charge an innocent person include:

  • Mistaken identity
  • Lying witnesses
  • Fabricated evidence
  • Sloppy police work and overzealous prosecutors
  • Racism
  • A misclassification of legitimate self-defense
