Aggressive, Skillful and Experienced Defense

Helping develop a strong defense against violent crime charges

When it comes to criminal charges, Iowa residents are aware some allegations are more serious than others. The severity of the crime in conjunction with the accused's criminal history could result in a defendant facing harsh penalties if a conviction ensues. Because of that, understanding the circumstances surrounding the alleged crime as well as the rights and options available to defendants could help with the assertion of a strong and effective criminal defense.

Violent crimes are crimes society takes seriously and are likely to be offenses that carry with them severe consequences. Whether a defendant is accused of battery, manslaughter, aggravated assault or murder, the details of the criminal allegation alone could cause the accused to suffer harm to his or her personal and professional reputation. At J. Dean Keegan and Thomas D.S. Farnsworth Attorneys at Law, our knowledgeable legal team is prepared to help criminal defendants in the Iowa City area understand their legal rights and help them assert an aggressive criminal defense.

When an individual is accused of a violent crime, it is important to consider the evidence used against the accused. This information is what the state is relying on when it comes to filing the charge and seeking a conviction. Thus, our skilled attorneys are well versed in the legal options available to defendants that could help them poke holes in the prosecution's case. Ultimately, this could help suppress evidence, which in turn can result in a defendant facing a lesser charge or having the charges against them altogether dismissed.

While it is a overwhelming time and experience, it is important that defendants do not let their fears and emotions get in the way of filing a timely defense. Asserting a defense is a person's best options to avoid serious penalties; thus, it should be carefully and timely considered.
