Napa Violent Crime Lawyer
Have you been charged with a violent crime?
Crimes involving violence against another person are some of the most heavily prosecuted and punished crimes in California. The state, and nation, takes violent offenses seriously in the name of public safety and penalties for conviction are levied with the full force of the law.

There are many who are innocently charged and unfairly convicted of violent crimes every year. If you have been accused of or arrested for a violent crime, you should contact a Napa criminal defense attorney immediately to begin fighting for your rights.
