Violent crimes carry heavy penalties in Virginia. A conviction for an act of violence may lead to years in state prison. If you are accused of committing a violent crime, you need to ensure your rights are protected by a skilled criminal lawyer. At Norfolk Justice, we take a collaborative team approach to defending people accused of violent crimes. You will have the support of several lawyers working on your case. 

Through all of it what we admired most was her kindness.

A Quality Defense Matters

If you are accused of a violent crime, you need a quality defense. Your criminal lawyer must bring the skills, talents, and ability to craft a compelling case to your defense. At Norfolk Justice, we protect the rights of the criminally accused, and do everything legally possible to reduce the damage, whether seeking a case dismissal, reduced charge, alternatives to jail time, or an acquittal in court. 

Crimes of Violence: Virginia Law

Under Virginia Law § 18.2-288., “crimes of violence” are defined as committing, or attempting to commit, “murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, rape, mayhem, assault with intent to main, disable, disfigure or kill, robbery, burglary, housebreaking, breaking and entering and larceny.” You may have been wrongfully accused, acted in self-defense, or another mitigating factor. The first step in developing a strong case for your defense is a thorough evaluation of the evidence. Our team of criminal attorneys will look deeply into the facts to identify the flaws in the case, and in many cases, find evidence to fight to exonerate the innocent.
