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 - 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.
I hired Attorney Mike Kraut and I'm am so happy and grateful that I did! I was arrested for a DUI because my BAC level was over the .08 limit. I ended up getting a wet and reckless instead of a DUI. I still have to do some classes and I'm on probation, but I do not have a DUI on my record. If you have a DUI hire Attorney Kraut, he definitely knows his stuff!
