Defending People Charged With Violent Crimes

Were you arrested for defending yourself during a domestic violence situation? Did you lose your temper during a breakup of a long-term relationship? Were you in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Decades Of Experience And Skill On Your Side In Michigan

At the Ann Arbor criminal law firm of Dawid & Gatti, PLLC, all we do is defend people who are charged with crimes. In fact, our skilled attorneys routinely handle criminal defense cases involving violent acts, such as:

  • Criminal sexual conduct: Often referred to as CSC, a conviction for this crime can lead to a minimum 20 year sentence to life in prison. It may also require registration per SORA, Michigan's sex offenders' registry act, for the rest of a person's life or for a shorter time period.
  • Domestic violence: This misdemeanor charge can involve violent acts against women and men, even when a defendant was really the victim of the initial assault.
  • Assault: Assault charges can be for simple assault, sexual assault, assault with intent to cause bodily harm, assault with intent to do less than bodily harm, assault by strangulation and assault with intent to murder.
  • Murder: A murder conviction can lead to life in prison without parole.

In 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that Michigan's law allowing juveniles to be sentenced to life without parole is unconstitutional. Our law firm won the release of a 44-year-old man who had been imprisoned since he was 17 years old.

Don't Give Up The Fight For Your Rights And Your Freedom

Some who are charged with violent crimes know at the time they are arrested that they will spend time in jail. If you feel this way, this does not mean you should give up without defending yourself. There are so many factors involved in each case that you may be surprised to learn about all the options that are available to you.

Don't leave your future to chance. Let the lawyers at Dawid & Gatti, PLLC, review your case as soon as you are arrested or charged. We will comb through the evidence of your case and challenge the legality of the search and seizure whenever appropriate.
