Defending Violent Crime Charges

If you have been arrested for a violent crime, these are some of the most serious charges you can face. Violent crimes are mostly charged as felonies due to the severity of the crime and they carry a much stiffer penalty if you are convicted. Most law enforcement officials will aggressively investigate and pursue a prosecution for these types of crimes, so it is vital to have a strong and skilled Newport Beach criminal defense attorney to represent you against these charges. Some of the common violent crimes the Law Offices of Scott D. Hughes can handle for you include but are not limited to:

  • Robbery
  • Aggravated assault
  • Assault
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Rape
