Defending Florida Clients Facing Violent Criminal Charges

The legal system treats violent offenses – crimes intended to inflict physical harm against another person – very severely. Because most violent crimes are felonies, the penalties for a conviction are usually harsh.

When you are up against such serious consequences, you need the counsel of a strong criminal defense attorney like those at Leskovich Law Group, P.A., in Punta Gorda. They have over 50 combined years of experience, so you can rest assured that they have the knowledge and skills to help.

What Are The Most Common Violent Offenses?

Florida recognizes a vast spectrum of violent criminal charges. Some of the ones that we handle most frequently include:

  1. Assault: Assault involves the use of force or a threat of force to make someone fear harm.
  2. Battery: Touching or physically harming someone else in a threatening manner is known as battery.
  3. Domestic violence: Domestic violence refers to committing a violent offense against a family or household member. These cases usually involve at least five days of jail time.
  4. Homicide: The most severe violent crime is homicide, or intentionally causing someone else’s death. In Florida, it is a capital offense.

Without strong defense counsel, a conviction for one or more of these charges could result in years of prison time.
