Protecting The Futures Of Those Facing Charges For Violent Crimes In California

A conviction for any type of violent crime in California can result in extremely serious penalties and can have the potential to do significant damage to your future. Even a conviction on a misdemeanor charge for simple assault can get you labeled as a violent person by prospective employers, landlords and other people who have reason to review your criminal history.

If you have been accused of any kind of violent crime, be sure that you have a qualified criminal defense lawyer beside you at all times. At the Law Office of Thomas A. Johnson, we understand the impact a conviction can have on you, and we know how to present a compelling defense designed to protect your interests.

Taking A Proactive Approach To Your Defense

In many cases involving accusations of violence, there can be a number of viable defenses available. Many people who are charged in these cases are guilty of nothing more than self-defense or the protection of another person. In other instances, a case of mistaken identity gets an innocent person charged with a serious crime.

We have experience defending clients against all types of violent crimes, including:

  • Assault, including felony assault
  • Battery
  • Battery on a peace officer
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping and false imprisonment
  • Murder
  • Voluntary and involuntary manslaughter
  • Robbery
  • Home invasion

We will take the time to fully investigate your case, including the review of police reports, statements from the alleged victim and any witnesses, medical reports and any other information that could help us prepare your defense. We will pursue every available option in an effort to protect your freedom and avoid a conviction.
