Queens Violent Crime Attorney
Regarding Violent Crime Charges
Violent crimes are given a great deal of attention in the media. Because society abhors violence in general, the laws concerning these crimes are strict and the penalties are severe. Police departments and law enforcement in general are put under a lot of pressure to make arrests and prosecute the culprits. This kind of pressure can sometimes lead to fast investigations and mistakes on the part of over eager officers. When acting on behalf of a client accused of or charged with a violent crime, a defense attorney must take every precaution to ensure the client's rights have not been violated.
Choose Powerful Defense
Aggressive investigators and prosecutors can arrest the wrong person or fail to follow the required procedures in gathering or handling evidence and in interviewing witnesses and the accused. In order to protect a client's constitutional rights and prevent a miscarriage of justice, the defense must be continuously alert, insist these standards are upheld, and pursue every opportunity to obtain a "not guilty" verdict. As an experienced former prosecutor and violent crime lawyer, Attorney Michael Musa-Obregon is committed to analyzing the prosecution's case for any weaknesses which could be used to a client's advantage.
