Violent Crimes

Assault Charges · Domestic Violence · Serious Felonies

Allegations of violence or threats of bodily harm can carry severe penalties, including jail or prison time and the lifelong stigma of a criminal record. The more serious the crime, the higher the stakes for your freedom and your future.

Attorney Chris Spring prosecuted individuals charged with violent crimes when he was an assistant district attorney at the beginning of his career. Since becoming a defense attorney, he has represented hundreds of people charged with violent crimes in district and superior court, and he has a successful track record of convincing juries to find his clients not guilty.

Accused of a Violent Crime? Talk to a Lawyer Immediately.

If you are accused of committing a crime, it is almost never smart to talk to the police. The police are skilled at obtaining confessions from people accused of crimes, and even if you are innocent, the police will attempt to interpret your story in a way that makes you look guilty. Instead of talking to the police, you should make an appointment to consult with a criminal defense attorney to explore your options. Contact Attorney Chris Spring today to arrange a free consultation.

Spring & Spring handles the full spectrum of criminal charges, from domestic disputes to allegations of causing catastrophic injury or death:

Assault charges and sexual misconduct

Robbery and use of force

Domestic violence, harassment or intimidation

A Former Prosecutor Fighting for You

Depending on the nature of the offense and your criminal history, violent offenses may carry mandatory prison time. If you have been convicted of violent offenses in the past, you could be charged under enhancement statutes, such as being a habitual criminal, which will dramatically increase the punishment you face and could result in a lengthy state prison sentence. Even if you avoid incarceration, a conviction for assault or other crimes of violence can affect your employment, your education, and your family.
