Criminal Defense: Defense For Violent Crimes in Miami

Work With Aggressive & Experienced Defense Lawyers The Miami criminal lawyers at Donet, McMillan, & Trontz, P.A. (DMT) use their 50 combined years of experience to provide their clients charged with violent crimes an aggressive and compelling defense. We have successfully represented hundreds of clients charged with violent crimes. Although, our defense team has represented clients charged with murder and manslaughter, the majority of cases for which we have provided representation include aggravated battery, aggravated assault, aggravated stalking, child neglect and child abuse.

The Serious Nature of Violent Crime Charges

Due to the severity of the charges prosecutors will assign only their best and most experienced lawyers to these types of cases. Unless a compelling defense is established by DMT, prosecutors will charge individuals with the most serious charges available to them and seek the maximum penalties under the law at the time of sentencing. Many charges, such as aggravated battery and aggravated child abuse carry prison sentences under the Florida Sentencing Guidelines. Aggravated assault with a firearm carries a 3 year minimum sentence. Battery on a law enforcement officer or resisting an officer with violence do not usually carry jail or prison sentences for first time offenders, but are none the less taken seriously because the victims work closely with the State Attorneys Offices in every South Florida jurisdiction.

Why choose DMT to fight your violent crime charge?

Due the serious implications of being charged with a violent crime in the South Florida area, it is essential to hire a Miami criminal attorney at DMT to defend and protect your rights. If you are being investigated for or have been arrested for committing a violent crime, it is essential that you seek advice and counsel of an experienced a criminal lawyer.

To establish a successful defense to a violent crimes case, an individual must hire a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Failing to obtain representation at the earliest stages of a prosecution can prove to be damning to an individual's case. For example, it is imperative that a suspect in a violent crime case does not speak to any law enforcement authorities. Any statements made, whether or not they seem harmless at the time, may be all the prosecution needs to make their case stronger.

Another example would be to establish an alibi defense as soon as possible to add the credibility to this particular defense. If you or a loved one has been charged with a violent crime in Miami or South Florida, meet the law firm of DMT who will aggressively fight for and defend your case.
