Columbia Violent Crime Attorneys

We Fight Back with Aggressive Legal Representation

Violent crimes are those in which the physical safety of the victim has been threatened or violated. The use of force against the victim may have been the result of another crime being committed, such as robbery, or the act may have been committed solely to physically threaten or harm the victim. Either way, these crimes are generally charged as felonies which have harsh penalties.

With your reputation, future, and freedom at stake, it is crucial to have an attorney with a proven track record in criminal defense. Our Columbia violent crime attorneys at Murray Law Firm bring 30 years of concentrated criminal defense practice to the table. We have a reputation for aggressively standing up for the rights of the accused. With our experience, knowledge, and skills, we work vigorously to defend the rights of our clients.
