Violent Crime: Defending Clients Against The Most Serious Accusations
Being accused of a violent crime can wreak havoc on all areas of your life. I am William Walraven, founder of the Law Offices of William Walraven.
I serve clients in San Francisco, San Mateo County and throughout the Bay Area. I believe people deserve a vigorous legal defense and will do everything I can to defend your freedoms. After listening to your story, I will explain the potential options you are facing as well as ways to move forward.
What Does The Prosecution Need To Prove?
Violent crimes can include anything from assault to battery and domestic violence. To obtain a criminal conviction, the prosecution must show that a person committed a crime with the intent of harming someone else. The degree of the charge they are facing will depend on the actions taken as well as how much the other person suffered. Typically, these are considered felony charges. In certain situations, this means spending life behind bars.
Investigating The Criminal Charges
Regardless of the specifics of your case, I will do everything I can to give you the representation you deserve. I have built a solid reputation with the prosecutors, judges and court administrators. They know that I am diligent, am strategic and want what is best for my clients. This is crucial when building a defense. Do they have the wrong person? Did the other person play a role in the altercation? Were you acting in self-defense? These are the questions we will answer and address when navigating a claim.
