Violent Crimes

Violent Crimes

Many felony offenses involving force are defined as violent crimes here in Colorado. Even if you believed you were exercising your right to defend yourself, your family or your property, the police are not required to believe you, and you may be charged with a crime of violence.

We Don't Shy Away From Tough Cases

Convictions for felony violent crimes include serious consequences, including mandatory minimum prison sentences. At The Law Office of Thomas W. Martin, LLC, in Fort Collins, we provide comprehensive defense representation for criminal charges including:

  • Assault
  • Sex assault
  • Assault with a weapon
  • First-, second- and third-degree assault
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated robbery
  • Menacing (threatening someone)

The courts consider use of a weapon, a defendant's state of mind and the physical injuries of the alleged victim when determining the nature and severity of the charge. If you find yourself charged with assault, first-degree, second-degree or third-degree assault, you need guidance and representation from a lawyer who has routine experience handling these cases. At The Law Office of Thomas W. Martin, we understand how these charges can affect your rights, your property and your family. We will aggressively fight to protect your rights and your future.
