Sometimes arguments escalate. Sometimes fights break out. Situations that should have been resolved differently end in an arrest. People are left wondering what happened and worrying about the future.
If you have been arrested, it is okay to worry. But you should also take action and contact me — Salt Lake City violent crimes attorney Catherine Cleveland. At my law firm, I represent people who have been accused of non-death penalty violent crimes.
I defend clients against a range of charges in Utah State and Federal Courts, including:
What Happens From Here?
Many people have never been in trouble with the law before being arrested for a violent crime. Often, they face allegations of domestic violence after a fight escalates or are involved in a bar fight that suddenly broke out. They have never gone to Court before and don’t know what to expect.
I bring a track record of more than 15 years as a Salt Lake City violent crimes lawyer of protecting the rights of each client and looking out for their best interests. Guiding them through the legal system, I help them understand what will happen. I also help them understand what penalties they may face. These may include restraining or protective orders, jail time or probation as well as anger management classes.
Penalties for violent crimes also may include “restitution,” which is money paid to the victim to compensate him or her for the damage that was experienced. Additionally, alleged victims of violent crimes sometimes file civil lawsuits to recover compensation for their medical bills and pain and suffering.
