Complete Defense

The Sokoloff Law Firm will do everything in its power to make sure that the circumstances of your case are understood completely by the prosecutor.  We will explore every opportunity for your successful defense.

Sometimes violent conduct is perfectly legal.  Some defense strategies that can combat charges of violent crime are:

Self Defense - Everyone has the right to defend themself if they are attacked.  Depending on the circumstances, even deadly force can be legal.

Mutual Combat - Do the facts of your case show that a fight was going on?  Maybe things were not as one-sided as the prosecution claims...

Defense of Another Person - Like self defense, sometimes you have the right to defend others, especially if they are closely connected to you.  

Even if you do not have an affirmative defense available to you, The Sokoloff Law Firm will make sure that your case is seen in the best light by the prosecutor and the judge.  We demand a fair process for all of our clients and we will not quit until we get the best outcome possible for you.
