Your Defense Attorney

As your legal defense team, Kicklighter Law will work diligently to resolve your case in a favorable way and will go to battle for you in court, if necessary. Being accused of a crime is serious, and it’s important to have a defense attorney on your side to defend your rights.

Violent Crimes

For a criminal offense to be considered a violent crime, it must include either the use or threat of violence or force against another person. Though there are many types of violent crimes, and some of the primary ones include:

  • Murder
  • Rape or Sexual Assault
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Simple Assault

It’s important to be aware that an act of violence does not need to involve the use of a physical weapon to be considered a violent crime. Additionally, the mere threat of violence, such as intimidation, can be considered a violent crime. These types of crimes are considered felonies and are very serious. If you’ve been charged with a violent crime, you need an experienced legal team, like Kicklighter Law, handling your case.

Non-Violent Crimes

Unlike violent crimes, a non-violent crime does not involve violence or force against another person. Instead, severity of these types of crimes is determined by the amount of monetary loss or property damage. Non-violent crimes include:

  • Drug Crimes
  • DUI Charges
  • Property Crimes
  • White Collar Crime

Despite the fact that no one is physically injured when a non-violent crime is committed, they can still carry serious legal ramifications. Minor non-violent crimes, such as drug possession or disorderly conduct, are considered misdemeanors. However, others are more major and will be considered felonies, like white collar crime or a property crime. These types of cases can be very complex and require a skilled defense attorney.
