Defending Clients Accused of Violent Offenses in Federal and State Court
If you have been charged with murder, manslaughter, attempted murder, felony assault or any other serious violent crime, or if a member of your family has been arrested for one of these offenses, it is in your interests to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Honolulu violent crime defense lawyer Brook Hart has been practicing criminal law in Hawaii since 1968 and has successfully defended many clients against these serious charges.
Mr. Hart has tried some of the state's most high-profile and protracted criminal cases, many of them involving allegations of violence. Common violent crime charges include the following:
- First-degree murder
- Second-degree murder
- Negligent homicide
- Attempted murder
- Assault and aggravated assault
- Violent sexual assault
Mr. Hart has helped many clients get these charges dismissed or reduced by attacking the prosecution's evidence and developing viable defenses, including self-defense arguments and mental status defenses (aka insanity defenses). Of course, every violent crime case is unique and must be evaluated on its own merits based on the facts and available evidence.
