Pittsburgh Violent Crimes Defense Attorneys

A conviction for a violent crime offense carries with it harsh criminal consequences, including time in prison. It also results in long-lasting effects that will impact the rest of your life, including the loss of the right to bear arms, difficulties finding employment and housing, and a serious taint to your reputation. With so much at stake, the last thing you want to do is to hire an inexperienced attorney to represent you.

At DRK Lawyers in Pittsburgh, we have built a team of aggressive litigators that is dedicated to fighting for your rights. Our attorneys are former prosecutors. This means we know what the state is working to prove, what evidence they must have to prove it, and which tactics they will employ to get a judge or jury to convict you. We will use this first-hand knowledge to help build a comprehensive defense strategy geared toward eliminating or at least minimizing the consequences you are facing.

We Defend Against All Violent Crimes Charges

For our team of staunch defense lawyers and former prosecutors, no criminal charge is too tough for us to tackle. We know just how to prepare a client for all stages of the process for crimes such as:

In addition to these four violent crimes, we also defend clients against crimes such as simple assault, aggravated assault, robbery, harassment, kidnapping and domestic violence.

Advocating for Clients With Mental Health Issues

Clients who have mental health issues have much to lose when it comes to the criminal justice system, especially when it comes to violent crimes charges. Due to our prosecutorial work, we have gained special hands-on experience that gives us invaluable insight into the best defenses and recourses available to clients with mental health concerns or mental illnesses. We will fight hard to protect our clients’ rights, allowing them to get the help that they need.

Our Mantra: Innocent Until Proven Guilty

We treat our clients with the respect they deserve, because even though they are in the criminal system, they are not criminals. The Pennsylvania legal process is challenging enough on its own. So we become diligent advocates for each individual who seeks us out, as we know that sometimes we may be the only people standing in their corners.
