Get Help Understanding Your Charges

Due to their serious nature, violent crimes often have elevated penalties. A crime is classified as violent when there is either actual physical violence or the threat of physical violence. Even if you never touch the other person, you may find yourself facing these more serious charges if they accuse you of threatening them with violence. Therefore, it is vitally important to take your charges seriously and work with an experienced attorney like ours in Kalamazoo.

If you are convicted of a violent crime, you may face:

  • Years to life in prison
  • Thousands of dollars in fines
  • Permanent loss of individual rights
  • Permanent criminal record
  • Difficulty finding work or employment
  • A ruined reputation in your community

Most violent crimes are charged as felonies, and a felony conviction can destroy your life. The presence of a felony conviction on your record can result in the loss of your job or professional licensing. It can also complicate other legal matters, such as child custody and other aspects of family law. This is why you need an aggressive defense strategy. It is never a good idea to represent yourself in these matters, even if you believe your innocence is self-evident. You need to secure trusted legal representation as soon as possible.

We Are Not Afraid to Do What It Takes

Many violent crimes happen in the heat of the moment, without premeditation. When situations escalate, people can get hurt, and you may find yourself facing violent crime charges unexpectedly. Additionally, these cases can easily devolve into one person’s word over another’s. Too often, people are wrongfully accused and charged for crimes they did not commit.

Furthermore, these cases are often mismanaged by law enforcement and prosecutors. When this happens, personal rights are violated, and innocent people suffer. Additionally, it has been noted that prosecutors, the courts, and juries can be biased against those accused of a violent crime. At Levine & Levine, we believe that everyone deserves justice, and we believe everyone deserves competent, committed legal counsel, no matter what.
