St. Louis Violent Crime Lawyer

Prosecution of Violent Crimes

Law enforcement and prosecutors are driven to obtain convictions against those accused of crimes of violence. Their intensity and motivation will need to be matched or bettered by a St. Louis criminal defense lawyer in order to have a successful outcome to your case. Experience and hard-hitting strategies based on detailed investigation, research and preparation are the keys to criminal defense. Since graduating law school, Attorney Brent Labovitz has focused his law practice on helping those who are being prosecuted for crimes. He began his career working for a respected criminal defense law firm in Chicago. Next he worked for the Missouri Public Defender's Office where he was lead counsel on hundreds of criminal cases, including those involving serious felony charges. His experience is now used to protect the rights and liberties of those who face prosecution for violent crimes.

Offenses such as vehicular assault, burglary, carjacking, robbery, sex crimes like rape or sexual assault, murder, manslaughter, assault and battery, certain weapons charges and others are considered violent crimes. These acts are ones in which force or the threat of it was used against a victim. In some cases, the emphasis may not have been on an intentional violent act but violence was used in order to commit a crime, such as in armed robbery.

Defending Violent Crime Charges in St. Louis

With the experience of the firm, being charged with a violent crime does not have to result in your being found guilty. In many cases, improper or illegal actions by law enforcement can be exposed. Unlawful search and seizure of your property may render the evidence against you unusable by the prosecution. The opposition must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Strong challenges to the weak points in a prosecutor's case can, in some cases, result in a finding of "not-guilty" on your behalf.

When guilt is beyond any doubt, understanding all aspects of the criminal justice system permits Attorney Labovitz to negotiate with prosecutors in such a way as to obtain better plea offers. If this occurs in your case, it can significantly reduce the penalties you are given. It is important that the firm begins working quickly on your case. The more time spent in review and analysis of your case, the better the chances for a positive result.

I would highly recommend Brent When feeling uncomfortable with the public defender in IL, I decided to seek additional information from Brent. I was impressed with Brent's knowledge and experience. I ended up firing my public defender (who was about to have me plead guilty) to hire Brent. After hiring Brent, we reviewed all of the details of my case. He immediately saw "red flags" and was able to investigate my case thoroughly, and in the end filed a motion to dismiss the case. My case was thrown out by the judge siding with Brent instead of the Attorney General from the state. In facing some significant charges, Brent was able to make me feel comfortable and I immediately thought I could trust his knowledge and experience to help me defend my rights in court. I knew he was fighting for me and could prove the charges were false. I would highly recommend Brent if you are need of a competent and professional lawyer to represent you
