Boulder Violent Crimes Lawyer
When police arrest someone for a violent crime such as assault or domestic violence, they often fail to look at the motive of the accuser or the circumstances in which the accusation arose. As a lawyer who defends people accused of violent crimes, I find myself uncovering facts and mitigating factors that the police didn’t bother to investigate.
I am lawyer Marc Milavitz. From my law office in Boulder, I defend people throughout Colorado who are charged with all types of violent crimes, including:
- Misdemeanor and felony assault
- Domestic violence
- Restraining order violations
- Terroristic threats
Defenses in Assault Crimes
Criminal allegations of domestic violence often arise during divorce proceedings. I have successfully had these cases either dismissed or resolved with a minimal negative impact on the family law case.
I have extensive experience raising issues of self-defense and defense of property in both domestic violence and assault cases. I represented a young Cambodian man who was with a group of 15 young people who were accosted in a diner by two white men. When my client left with his friends, the white men followed the group, picked a fight with them and got beat up. The police arrested my client following a vehicle stop and charged him with assaulting the white men.
When I investigated, I discovered that my client did not instigate the fight and tried to leave the diner peacefully. One of the alleged victims, when asked if he could identify my client, said, “they all look the same to me.” That statement did not make it into the police officer’s written report, but I uncovered it by listening to the recorded interview. You can imagine how the jury reacted to it. We won the case at trial.
