Violent Crimes

San Diego Violent Crime Attorney

Skilled Criminal Defense Counsel for All Types of Violent Crimes

Violent crimes are prosecuted aggressively in California, and under our state’s three strikes law, violent felony convictions can have a significant impact on future convictions. A defendant with a prior strike (serious or violent felony conviction) on his record will face twice the sentence normally imposed for a new strike. A third strike will result in 25 years to life in prison.

At Premier Criminal Defense, we believe in upholding the constitutional rights of our clients in the face of violent crime allegations, arrests, and charges. Our firm was founded by Thomas Slattery, a San Diego criminal defense attorney who has been working in the field of criminal law for over 17 years. Mr. Slattery has seen it all, having dealt with literally thousands of clients through the years. He leads our team with the dedication and commitment it takes to succeed in challenging serious criminal charges like those involving violent crimes.
