High Profile Crimes
High Profile Crimes
Crime is much more than a statistic that makes the news. Every crime is real, and every action results in a reaction from the government. Despite all the public policy that gives the message that criminals need to be treated harshly, the Constitution says otherwise, and every defendant is guaranteed certain rights. The system is set up to provide every defendant with every opportunity to disprove charges, and that’s what allows society to minimize people wrongfully being imprisoned.
We understand these rights and this ideal, and the firm handles several different types of high profile crimes. Below is a set of examples of these types of high profile criminal cases, and if you are facing the prospect of being prosecuted, you need to contact the firm to schedule an initial consultation.
Homicide and murder are the most serious crimes enforced, and correspondingly, the punishments are the most severe, including the possibility of the death penalty for someone convicted of first degree murder. Learn More
This charge is most often brought in situations where the defendant was driving under the influence of a controlled substance and caused the death of another person or people. If convicted, the defendant could face many years in prison. Learn More
Kidnapping is a crime that’s as emotional in nature as any other charge, and when a child in particular is kidnapped, the world watches. Defendants convicted of kidnapping can face serious consequences, and the trials associated with this charge are often dramatic and difficult to handle without a high degree of legal experience and skill.

Some crimes are inherently federal in nature, and a defendant is facing an entirely different opponent in the federal government than a state government. Federal conviction rates nationwide average more than 90%, and that’s the biggest reason to fight federal charges as aggressively as possible. Learn More
Assault is also a crime that’s serious in nature, and depending on the circumstances surrounding the case, a defendant could face a relatively short amount of time in prison or face many years if the assault was aggravated in nature. Learn More
