Crimes of violence are a large area of Criminal Law and cover things from simple assault, all the way to mayhem and great bodily injury. Violent crimes are a major focus by law enforcement in every large city in California. There has been a tremendous push statewide to reduce the number of violent crimes and to severely punish those that commit them. The penalties that have been determined by lawmakers are extremely harsh, including strike offenses and mandatory prison sentences if convicted. Attorney Mark Anthony Raimondo has developed the knowledge and skills to handle even the most complex violent crimes cases.

If you or someone you love is charged with a violent offense, we understand that the issues facing you are daunting. Often times the police department is more concerned at making an arrest than getting out the truth as to what happened. Combine that with DA offices that are more concerned with getting convictions that any issue of mitigation, or rehabilitation.
