Serious Violent Crime Charges Need Attention From A Serious Lawyer
Crimes that include the element of violence are not taken lightly by the criminal justice system. When someone else is physically or mentally injured due to alleged actions by another, it is considered a violent crime. If you have been charged with this type of crime, talk to me as soon as possible.
I am attorney Brian Clay Johnson, and I am here to help you fight any criminal charges you may be facing, including those involving violent crimes. With over a decade of experience handling criminal law cases, I work tirelessly on behalf of my clients from the Johnson Law Firm in Jackson, Tennessee.
Types Of Violent Crimes
I confidently handle even the most serious violent crimes, including:
- Murder: Also referred to as homicide, murder cases are highly emotionally charged and filled with legal complexities. I take the time to explain the facets of the case and help you understand the consequences you may be facing, including the death penalty.
- Manslaughter: Though a lesser charge than murder, manslaughter cases are also considered homicides, as they involve the death of an individual, and are just as serious. I examine all aspects of the situation that led to the alleged crime and work to provide the jury with reasonable doubt whenever possible.
- Assault: Whether it was a bar fight or other physical altercation, assault is often charged as a felony and can leave you facing jail time, fines and other consequences. I gather all information needed to support your side of the case and zealously argue for your rights and freedom.
- Other violent crimes: I also represent clients who have been charged with other violent crimes, including domestic violence, kidnapping, firearms and weapons charges, sexual assault and more.
If you are convicted of a violent crime, you are facing extended time in prison as well as large fines. You will have to be away from your family, your work and your life. Also, as noted above, the state of Tennessee does have the death penalty and can apply it in certain cases that warrant such a consequence.
As all of these potential punishments are life-altering, it is essential that you have a lawyer on your side who will fight for your future every step of the way. I am here to ensure your rights are protected, your voice is heard and your defense is conveyed to the prosecution, judge and every member of the jury.
