Violent Crimes

Criminal Defense Lawyer for Violent Crimes, including Domestic Violence, Assault and Manslaughter

A violent crime is an extreme act in which an offender harms or threatens to harm another person. Violent crimes do not always have to include weapons.  They do, however, involve bodily injury, and almost always include severe penalties up to and including prison. Violent crimes demand an experienced litigator, one who is well-versed in the complex intricacies of the law and can stand tough in defense of an aggressive violent crime prosecution.

Crimes that are considered violent in nature include, but are not limited to:

  • Murder & Homicide
  • Assault
  • Robbery
  • Weapons Offenses
  • Domestic Violence
  • Kidnapping
  • Carjacking
  • Terroristic Threats

Oftentimes these charges are bundled, for example, having a weapon’s charge added onto an assault charge.  When charges are grouped together, the threat of incarceration becomes very real. Violent crimes, and acts of overt aggression and assault, are among the most despised in society and are aggressively prosecuted in the State of New Jersey.  The laws governing violent crime charges can be very complex, these are not charges you should be fighting on your own.

What Should You Do if You are Arrested for a Violent Crime such as Domestic Abuse or Assault with a Deadly Weapon?

Do not go at it alone, even if you believe that these charges are minor.  If you are arrested for a violent crime, do not talk to the police and do not try to work your way out of the charge or minimize what you have done. The authorities will listen and hold it all against you. Exercise your constitutional right to remain silent and get a criminal defense lawyer who handles violent crime charges ASAP.

Attorneys are at a major disadvantage in defending you if you have given any sort of incriminating statements or information to law enforcement that can be construed as a confession. Be firm in your request to speak to an attorney.  In the meantime, stay calm and remain silent.

The Law Offices of John Paragano will work diligently to defend your Constitutionally protected rights such as the right to remain silent, the right that your arrest be based solely upon probable cause, the right to protection against unreasonable search and seizure, and many other rights that you may not even realize are in place to protect you. To enforce your rights, I will make myself available to meet with you upon your arrest. We can explore your options together and, in certain cases, reduce the severity of the charges against you. To further protect you against self-incrimination, I will communicate directly with law enforcement on your behalf, guiding you on the best course of action to take to protect your rights.

For over thirty years, my law firm has successfully defended numerous violent crime charges.  Throughout my career, I have achieved numerous acquittals, dismissals and downgrading of charges for a variety of violent crimes at the local, county and state level. If you need an experienced and powerful criminal defense attorney to help you through these troubled waters, call my office today.
