Chattanooga Violent Crimes Lawyers

Experienced Tennessee Defense Attorneys

Being charged with a violent crime is extremely serious — a conviction can send you to prison for life. The penalties for class A felonies are severe and may include 15 years to life in prison. Many violent crimes require that you serve 85 to 100 percent of your sentence. Parole or probation may not be an option.

To fight these charges, you need an experienced trial lawyer. At Leonard M. Caputo, P.C., Attorneys at Law, Mike Caputo has the experience to handle any violent crime charge. As a former prosecutor, he has tried violent crime cases from both sides, including murder cases involving life, life without parole and the death sentence. For a free consultation with a Chattanooga violent crimes attorney, please call 423-771-9956 or 800-783-4240, or contact us online.

Special Considerations of Violent Crime Charges

Many violent crime cases proceed to trial, so your lawyer must have extensive trial experience. With our experience, we can represent people charged with a full range of violent crimes, including:

  • Robbery and home invasion
  • Murder, including first degree and capital cases
  • Sex crimes, including aggravated rape
  • Domestic violence
  • Assault and aggravated assault
  • Weapons offenses

Our firm has a team of investigators available, including some former law enforcement officers. We have experience with DNA evidence, ballistics and crime scene evidence. We thoroughly prepare cases, examining evidence for admissibility, interviewing witnesses and working to counteract the prosecution's strategy. As a former assistant district attorney, Mr. Caputo can look at the case from the prosecution's point of view and assess its strengths and weaknesses.

After evaluating your case, we will advise you of your options. If we believe a plea is in your best interests, we will tell you. However, if going to trial is the better option, we will be prepared to fight aggressively for you.
