Consequences That Can Follow You For Life
If you are being investigated for a violent crime, you may be facing lifelong consequences. The penalties for violent crimes can be among the most serious you can face: jail time, fines and permanent records that can limit where you live and go. You can also face social stigma that can hurt you and your family. You may feel hopeless — but you do not have to feel that way. All of these consequences are avoidable if you have the skilled representation you deserve.
A Seasoned Criminal Defense Attorney On Your Side
My name is Josh Lee. I’ve been working in criminal defense for my entire career. Even before passing the bar, I interned at the Oklahoma County Public Defender’s Office throughout law school, receiving a special license to try several felony cases myself. I have helped clients accused of violent crimes such as:
- Assault and battery. Often, these charges are mistaken for the same thing. That is not the case. Assault refers to the threat of violence, and battery means the actual carrying out of that violence.
- Aggravated assault and battery. This is an elevated charge from regular assault and battery, made more serious by the type of threat.
- Domestic violence. If you have been accused of violence by a past partner, the ramifications can follow you throughout your life, especially if you share children.
- Harassment. You may be accused of either misdemeanor or felony harassment. Penalties can be more serious if you have any past offenses.
I also offer representation for homicide and sex offenses. No matter what type of charge you’re facing, the job of law enforcement and prosecutors is to get you convicted, by any means necessary. You need representation whose job it is to keep that from happening.
As a skilled criminal defense lawyer, I know what to do to protect you. Because of my experience in the Oklahoma City area and in the criminal justice system, I can often get charges against my clients reduced or even dismissed.
