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.
