Aggressive Defense Against Violent Crime Charges
Violent crimes are prosecuted aggressively, and the consequences of conviction are devastating. There is no easy road if you are under investigation, arrested or charged with a violent crime. You need dedicated professional protection of your personal rights and privacy. Besides the possible prison term and steep fines of conviction, you are facing an intensely serious situation that could destroy your freedoms, family, career, and future.
If you are not protected and guided through the process with informative legal defense counsel from the outset, your entire livelihood is at immediate risk.
You still have options. We can protect your reputation and prevent your world from crashing down around you with the right approach and strategy. The attorneys of Garton & Vogt, P.C., have more than 25 years of criminal defense experience, and they are uniquely qualified to defend your case.
Experienced Attorneys Defending Clients Throughout Michigan
We serve our clients’ criminal defense needs in a range of violent crime circumstances, including:
- Homicide: It is critical to work with an experienced lawyer and leave nothing to chance. These serious crimes often turn on matters of criminal procedure, like illegally obtained confessions and other evidence, that requires in-depth knowledge of the law. We are thorough and defend clients against murder, manslaughter, vehicular manslaughter, second-degree murder and assault with intent to kill charges.
- Assault and battery: When you are accused of a violent crime, including allegations of domestic violence or abuse, we offer effective legal representation to help you minimize or avoid the consequences. If you get our law firm involved soon enough, we can possibly prevent charges from being filed.
- Larceny and robbery: When you’ve been accused of a theft crime, from shoplifting to embezzlement, begin working with Garton & Vogt, P.C., to prepare a strong defense. We are experienced negotiators and litigators and have a litany of tools and resources at our disposal. We will help you minimize consequences, explore alternative sentencing and vigorously defend your case with practical strategies.
- Domestic violence: Often an issue in assault- and battery-related charges, many assault crimes happen in the heat of the moment between family members who are arguing. Other domestic violence, assault, or battery charges are the result of false allegations.
Based in our office in Clinton Township, we have a long history of success that includes helping our clients achieve dropped charges, acquittals and favorable verdicts at trial.
