Violent Crime

Charges With Serious Impact

Facing charges for violent crime is stressful on both you and your loved ones. A conviction can mean not only fines or jail time, but also a permanent record that can impact the rest of your life. Furthermore, the process itself is difficult. Law enforcement and prosecutors do not give defendants the benefit of the doubt; it is their job to get a conviction. You may be treated poorly, including having your rights violated by overzealous police or prosecutors.

You need someone on your side — an attorney looking out for your best interests and ensuring that your rights are respected.

You Have Rights, No Matter What You Are Accused Of

At Hagen Law Offices, LLC, we are committed to protecting our clients, regardless of what law enforcement says about them. We have helped countless clients with violent criminal matters such as:

  • Assault and battery. These two offenses are closely related. While each distinct charge can have different meanings depending on your location, they are often paired.
  • Aggravated assault and battery. This is an extension of assault and battery, when the offense involves more serious threats or more serious injuries.
  • Domestic violence. This can be a dangerous charge because law enforcement takes it very seriously.
  • Harassment. This includes stalking, violating restraining orders and harassment on the telephone or internet.

One common misconception is that the victim of a crime needs to decide to bring charges for you to be charged. This is not the case. The prosecutor is the one who decides if you will be charged, so you need to prepare for the possibility, whether or not the victim wants to bring charges.
