Defending Those Accused of Violent Crimes

Here is an important fact about being charged with a violent crime that you should keep in mind: you have rights.

Accused of assault or battery? You have rights.

Suspected of committing homicide or using a deadly weapon? You still have rights.

No matter what type of violent crime you may be charged with, you have the right to proper representation and a fair trial. But, it's up to you to make that happen. So, don’t wait another moment to contact a skilled Orange County criminal defense lawyer. Call Law Office of Michael L. Guisti today to get the representation you need to preserve your freedom and your life.

California courts are harsh on people who've been accused of a violent crime. Even an encounter you believed to be nothing more than a minor incident - such as a fight at a bar - can land you in serious trouble, and even in state prison. Don’t get caught up in the system without strong legal counsel at your side, fighting every step of the way.

Call Law Office of Michael L. Guisti and we’ll make sure your side of the story gets heard. The number to call is (714) 530-9690.

Violent Crimes Charges We Represent

police car lights

According to the California criminal code, violent crime is just about anything that involves violence of some sort. So, if you threatened someone with a weapon, such as a gun or a large knife, that could be considered a violent crime. If you committed armed robbery, even if the gun was a fake, it could be considered a violent crime. Just about every action that causes or could potentially cause severe injury to another person could fall under violent crime.

The following are just some of the potential charges that we stand ready to defend you against:

What Kind of Conviction Could I Face?

The answer to this question depends on many factors. What kind of crime are you charged with? Do you have any past convictions? Was there a deadly weapon, such as a loaded gun, involved? In most instances, violent crimes are classified as felonies. This means a stiff sentence is possible if you're convicted.

Client Reviews

“It was strongly recommended that I call federal defense attorney Michael L. Guisti. He had several investigators look at records and such, and my federal case was dismissed. Michael Guisti does what few attorneys can do, beat the federal government, and that is why if you’re in trouble with the government you need to call Michael Guisti right away!”
