Violent Crimes in Delaware

Misdemeanor Charges Should be Taken Very Seriously

Violent crimes may be charged at the misdemeanor or felony level. However, even misdemeanor charges should be taken very seriously. A conviction can lead to jail time, fines, and probation, among other consequences. In addition, having a criminal record increases the odds that the prosecution will seek maximum penalties if you are ever charged with a crime again in the future.

Our Dover office is devoted exclusively to criminal defense, including violent crime. We have represented individuals facing a wide variety of misdemeanor level violent crimes in Delaware, including:

  • Assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Harassment
  • Menacing
  • Offensive touching
  • Reckless endangering
  • Terroristic threatening

A violent crimes charge can occur as the result of a mistake or misunderstanding. However, a skilled defense attorney will work to understand the entire context of your situation and help you attain the best possible outcome.

A Felony Conviction can have Life-Altering Consequences

A felony conviction can have life-altering consequences including lengthy prison sentences, excessive fines, long-term probation, and a future in which you are permanently identified as a convicted felon. Individuals with violent crimes convictions on their criminal record have experienced challenges in renting apartments and finding jobs. A conviction can also negatively impact your eligibility for professional licenses and educational loans. We have helped individuals facing charges that include:

  • Assault
  • Burglary
  • Domestic violence
  • Felony DUI
  • Gun crimes, including possession of a firearm and carrying concealed deadly weapon (CCDW)
  • Home invasion
  • Reckless endangering
  • Robbery
  • Stalking
  • Strangulation
  • Vehicular assault first (1st) degree
  • Vehicular homicide
