Violent Crimes

Los Angeles Violent Crimes Defense Lawyer

Violent crime in the United States and California is rampant. Because of the increase in this type of crime, people are being falsely accused of violent crimes in the Los Angeles area. Southern California defense attorney Michael Kraut defends those accused of violent crimes.

Because of the increase of violent crimes, our representatives have significantly increased the penalties for a conviction of these offenses. If you are charged with a violent crime, you need a criminal defense attorney who has a proven tract record of trying these cases. As an senior trial attorney, I have a history of handling hundreds of cases of those charged with violent crimes. They range from criminal (terrorist) threats to first degree murder. Most violent crimes fall under the California "Three Strikes" Law. A conviction of these crimes will have serious and significant consequences to you or a loved one charged with a violent crime.

Many times, the police rush to attempt to solve these crimes and do not do a complete investigation. The result can be a case that is overly charged by the prosecutor, or worse yet, resulting in an innocent person being convicted of a violent crime. Police may take statements from witnesses who are mistaken or lying, resulting in misidentification and false charges made against you or your loved one. Law enforcement has the goal to clear a case as soon as possible and move on to the next investigation. Many times, they do not gather all of the evidence and witness statements, which would have led to no charges being filed by the prosecution, or less severe charges. Other times, rogue police officers use illegal tactics to gain evidence. Our attorneys know California criminal law and criminal procedure to make sure that illegal evidence is not considered by the court or jury.

There are affirmative defenses to violent crimes, including self-defense, defense of others or misidentification.

Below is a list of violent crimes:

Michael Kraut is outstanding! He genuinely cared about my case and instructed my mom and I throughout the entire process. He was very clear on what he needed in order to receive the best results. He kept us updated until the end. I thank him so much for getting my charges rejected. I highly recommend him to anyone with legal needs! Shaquan
I contacted Michael with concern for my personal and business reputation. He was very reassuring and confident the entire time. After about 3 weeks it was determined that no charges were being filed by any agency and I was in the clear of any investigation. One thing that is amazing is just how FAST Michael is at replying to phone calls, texts, and even emails! We are talking under 30 minutes in most cases. That is unheard of for most attorneys! Michael is incredible and not your typical run of the mill attorney. For best results hire him if you feel like you might be under investigation or could face charges. Even if you know you are innocent it is best to take care of the smoke before it becomes a fire. Brad
Michael Kraut is-hands down-the best criminal defense attorney and I can't begin to thank him for all that he did for me and my family. I reached out to him in the middle of the night and less than a couple hours later, he had gotten back to me and scheduled a meeting. He's a no-nonsense attorney who knows how to get the job done! From the second we retained him, I had peace of mind in knowing that we were in the best hands possible. If Michael Kraut couldn't get it done, I knew that it couldn't be done at all. You can't put a price tag on your freedom. He was worth every single penny. Lida
Michael Kraut is an outstanding attorney. He was extremely professional, and straightforward, yet sensitive with my case. I am confident I made the right choice by hiring Michael. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly experienced lawyer. Daniel
Michael Kraut - I cannot thank you enough for all that you did for ​my son. When I came to you I read that you used to be a district attorney but I never knew how much that meant until I watch you in court. I knew it took 3 months but the final day when I heard the judge say that all charges were dismissed it was all worth it! I will always be grateful for all that you did for us. A.N.
