I defend violent crimes that include murder – which is the most heinous of the crimes under the violent crime logo or banner – attempted murders, aggravated batteries. Any level of the types of murder charges, such as involuntary manslaughter. These are generally the violent crimes that everybody thinks about when they see violent crimes. So it could be from an aggravated battery all the way up to a murder. However, you have also domestic violence that are obviously violent crimes, and some sex offenses are violent crimes as well.
