Winston Salem Violent Crime Lawyer

What is a Violent Crime?

Violent criminal charges are taken very seriously in North Carolina, and if you are charged with one of these crimes then the prosecution will be under pressure to land a conviction. You need a violent crime defense lawyer who can help you even the playing field with studious and aggressive representation. Grace, Tisdale & Clifton P.A. consists of a team of highly experienced violent crime defense lawyers in Winston-Salem, many of whom are former prosecutors who have handled these cases from both sides.

It is important you seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Call (336) 515-6552 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation.

Types of Violent Offenses

Homicide is the first word many people think of when they hear the term “violent crime”, but there are many other charges that fall into this category, including:

  • Attempted murder
  • Rape
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Domestic assault
  • Kidnapping
  • Arson
  • Aggravated assault
  • Assault with a deadly weapon

If the police have questioned you about your alleged involvement in a violent crime or you believe you are being investigated, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible— even if you have not been arrested yet. Law enforcement is not obligated to inform you of your rights if you are not being interrogated and in custody. This means they will not have read your Miranda Rights.

Miranda Rights in NC

Miranda Rights include the right to remain silent. Anything you say to the police can be used against you if you are charged and brought to trial. A skilled lawyer can intervene with law enforcement on your behalf.

You Do Not Need to Handle This Alone

Criminal proceedings can be intimidating and confusing, especially if you have never been involved in a situation like this before. Before you discuss anything with law enforcement or anyone else, meet with an attorney first to discuss how to protect your legal rights.
