Farmington Hills, MI, Violent Crimes Lawyer Defending Metro Detroit's Residents from Prosecution

Each violent crime has its own unique issues, but all are aggressively prosecuted in Michigan. Depending on the extent of the injury and whether a weapon was involved, a charge can be a misdemeanor or a felony. Depending on aggravating factors, a felony charge can include consequences of five years to life in prison.

Because of the stakes of these cases, it is crucial to reach out to a skilled defense lawyer as soon as possible. You should expect to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, and you need a defense attorney with experience in defending against violent crime charges.

Prosecutors Have a Wide Variety of Tools to Increase the Severity of Your Charges


It is important to realize that prosecutors are always looking for aggravating factors when charging a person with a violent crime. Any crime that puts a person in the hospital will be considered for a felony. If the victim is a member of a protected class, the prosecutors will attempt to increase the severity of a charge. We strongly encourage you to get in touch and aggressively defend against these tactics to reduce the risk to your freedom.

  • Fantastic Lawyer and Amazing Person.
    I had never been through any legal process and Ray was incredible from the start. I was terrified to even tell him my situation and he was compassionate, kind and encouraging – always letting me know he was there for me and to help me. He has a phenomenal knowledge of the law. When I had to appear in court, he knew how to properly navigate me through the process and I was always prepared for what information was to come next. I had the best possible outcome and it’s all due to Raymond Cassar. 5 Star's Rating - Jennifer
