Glendale Violent Crime Lawyer
Violent crimes are an unfortunately common issue within the court system
of California. As a result, California leads the nation in the harsh sentences
imposed on violent crime offenders. Violent crimes include offenses that
use or threaten the use of violent force upon the victim. Many individuals
still get convicted of violent offenses for wrong reasons, which is what
our firm strives to fight against.
Some of the reasons for wrongful convictions of violent offenses include:
- Mistaken identification
- Untruthful witnesses
- Fabricated evidence
- Legitimate self-defense
- Overzealous prosecution
At The Law Offices of Wade J. Skalsky, our
Glendale criminal defense attorneys strive to defend individuals who are faced with misdemeanor and felony
charges of violent crimes.
