Burton & McKinnish Proudly Defend Both Defendants and Victims of Violent Crimes


Many violent crimes are committed each day as a result of tumultuous emotional situations. Burton & McKinnish attorneys are highly adept at defending both the victim as well as the defendant of these types of crimes. Regardless of what causes an individual to become involved with a violent crime they are going to need serious legal help


Some of these crimes may be the result of being pushed over the edge by a variety of situations. The majority of them are the result of situations such as loss of employment, poverty, threatening or harassing relationships, among other evoking situations. No matter what causes an individual to commit a violent crime our attorneys are powerful in the criminal law realm and firmly believe that each one of their clients deserves to be treated fairly.


While not condoning violent crimes, our firm believes that individuals who are being charged with them deserve respect and fair treatment. Every violent crime case is different and it takes a highly skilled and dedicated attorney to determine how to build each one into a solid case. Our attorneys rely upon their resources and skills to build a case that will provide the absolute best outcome in a violent crime charge.


This degree of intensive work can take hours and a lot of careful planning before this type of case should ever be presented in court. A lot of investigational type of work needs to be done as well as emotional assessments to ensure an individual charged with such a crime receives appropriate sentencing. Often this type of crime is a result of self-defense and some individuals suffer with the consequences of being charged with a violent crime.


Unfortunately a lot of innocent people are convicted in violent crime cases as a result of being represented by an inexperienced attorney. An individual who is truly innocent should be deemed so and our attorneys work hard to see that innocent people charged with violent crimes never have to pay penalties they do not deserve. It has been said that Burton & McKinnish attorneys are open-minded and seek only the best interest of their clients, whether guilty or not.


As with any other crime, violent crimes are prevalent in all cultures and social statuses. Our attorneys work hard to ensure that cases are built upon facts and not prejudice misconceptions and falsified truths. There simply is not an adequate way to describe how fiercely our attorneys fight for the rights of their clientele regardless of a client’s cultural or social background.


The same is true when our attorneys are defending a victim of a violent crime; their rights come first and must always be protected. Rarely is this type of dedication and skill combined in one law firm that is adept at covering a wide variety of criminal charges. Our attorneys pride themselves for all of the hard work and dedication it took to get where they are and gain the notoriety they receive.


Knowing that our law firm enables people to receive fair and just treatment regardless of guilt or innocence does tend to boost our firms sense of pride, which is not easily found in other avenues. It is no secret that our attorneys stand firmly behind their clientele, as it is difficult to keep the levels of gratitude and appreciation that our attorneys regularly receive from clients a secret from the crowds. When needing the absolute best legal team available for a violent crimes case contact Burton & McKinnish and know that a winner is covering all of the bases.
