The Defense Of Murder And Other Violent Crimes
From first-degree murder to domestic violence, criminal charges related to violence carry some of the strictest penalties that will destroy your life. In the most serious cases, life in prison becomes a possibility.
There is no time to waste once arrested or aware of an investigation. You need legal counsel and guidance from a trial attorney known for successfully defending other Minnesotans against these life-altering charges.
Making The Best Choice
Not every attorney takes cases to trial, so you need to ask how many trials have you handled in the last year and what were the outcomes. At Rivers Law Firm, P.A., we are known for handling the toughest cases whether in the Twin Cities metro or out state. We take cases to a jury and win. Bruce Rivers, our founding attorney is also board certified in criminal defense by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, and as a criminal trial specialist by the Minnesota State Bar Association.
The statutes surrounding these crimes are complex enough; the added levels of complexity from past cases that established precedents make the choice of a defense lawyer extremely important.
Rivers Law Firm, P.A., defends clients charged with these and other violent crimes:
- Murder, whether allegations include premeditation or the negligent use of a vehicle possibly linked with drunk driving
- Assault and aggravated assault
- Domestic violence, including cases that allege strangulation
It has been observed that the true test of our system of justice is whether it respects the rights of people charged with unpopular crimes. In this sense, criminal law is the practice that hinges most directly on our Constitution and Bill of Rights. If you have been charged with a violent crime, we urge you to call immediately to prepare a powerful defense.
