Crimes of Violence Cases

An individual accused of aggravated assault offenses faces a possible sentence of up to 20 years in prison. Crimes of violence can result in very serious convictions and punishment. The severity of injuries to the victim, whether or not guns or other weapons were used, and whether or not the accused has a criminal record will affect the crime’s seriousness. An aggressive defense by an experienced attorney is the key to achieving a favorable result for a citizen accused of a violent crime.


Martin LeNoir has tried numerous serious crimes of violence cases to NOT GUILTY verdicts before juries. The reason for his successful jury verdicts is simple. Martin LeNoir will leave no stone unturned in the investigation of the case, and he will be one hundred percent prepared to cross examine the State’s witnesses and present favorable defense evidence at trial.

As a former prosecutor, Martin LeNoir knows how an investigation is conducted and what moves the other side will make.
