Santa Ana Violent Crime Lawyer

Experienced and Successful Criminal Defense Firm for Violent Crime Cases

There's crime, and then there's violent crime. Any crime involving violence carries much harsher penalties in a conviction. Darwish Law, a criminal defense law firm in Santa Ana, is dedicated to aggressively defending each person we represent. Our goal is to get your charges dismissed or at least reduced as one of our first actions, when possible. We also prepare every case for trial, should the case advance further through the system. Attorney Sabrina Darwish is experienced, both as a former public defender and later as an associate for a well-known criminal defense law firm, and has an outstanding degree of trial experience. We can handle any criminal charge, whether it's domestic violence, rape, DUI, assault or the most serious violent crimes involving homicide.

We know that not all people accused of committing a violent crime are guilty. There are countless cases where evidence is weak at best, witnesses lie to gain some advantage, identities are mistaken, police don't do a thorough job investigating, prosecutors become overenthusiastic, or the accused was actually merely acting in self-defense. As with any criminal case, it's crucial to do a meticulous investigation of the facts, including interviewing witnesses and carefully reviewing police reports and other documentation. Violent crimes include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Assault/Battery
  • Arson
  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Carjacking
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping
  • Manslaughter, involuntary and voluntary
  • Murder
  • Robbery

Penalties for violent crimes vary. Each crime carries different degrees of punishment, depending on whether it's a first, second or third-degree felony, whether you have a criminal history with convictions, for violent crimes, the Three Strike Law and other factors.
