Strong Defense For Assault Charges And Violent Crimes

Crimes of violence are prosecuted aggressively and punished harshly. If you are suspected of a violent crime, you need a capable defense attorney who can assert your rights and push back against the allegations. With the possibility of prison time and a felony record, your freedom and your future are at stake.

The criminal defense lawyers of Brown, Suarez, Rios & Weinberg have defended the accused in Fort Myers and southwest Florida for 15 years. Our proactive approach and skilled representation has resulted in acquittals, dismissals, reduced charges and other favorable results. We tell your side of the story and fight for you at every stage of the criminal justice system.

What Is Considered A Violent Crime In Florida?

A violent crime refers to intentional acts that cause actual bodily harm as well as acts that threaten harm or put people in danger of bodily injury. These can be misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on the circumstances. Examples of violent offenses include:

  • Domestic violence
  • Assault and battery
  • Robbery and armed robbery
  • Carjacking
  • Burglary of an occupied home or business
  • Arson
  • Drug-related violence
  • DUI accidents, vehicular assault and vehicular homicide
  • Murder or manslaughter

While violent crimes such as assault carry severe consequences by themselves, the stakes are raised when you combine them with the use of a weapon. If you have been accused of aggravated assault or face a longer sentence due to weapon enhancements, we will work vigorously to minimize the damage and lessen the charges.

Take Action To Preserve Your Rights

Trying to talk your way out of criminal charges never works. The best thing you can do is to assert your right to remain silent and talk to an attorney. When we are involved early, we can help protect your rights and possibly get charges dismissed or reduced. Our lawyers will examine the evidence for opportunities to challenge the government’s case. A conviction for assault or other crimes of violence will not only result in jail or prison; it can also affect future employment and prevent you from owning or possessing firearms.

“Whether you are facing serious charges or caught up in a misunderstanding, you can depend on our team of attorneys and legal professionals. It is important to find a law firm that is going to work tirelessly and leave no stone unturned when investigating a case.” – attorney Rene Suarez
