Violent Crimes

The clippings file at the Law Offices of Thomas C. Mooney is packed with stories from the firm's past homicide cases. At the time of this writing, the firm was engaged in six separate murder cases.

It is not a good thing to be accused of murder, but there is one advantage of being accused of such a serious crime: Juries generally give suspects the benefit of every doubt. They understand that their decision will have a huge impact on your and your family's lives, and they do not want to make that decision lightly.

These are just some of the violent crimes we defend against:

  • Murder
  • Attempted murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Rape
  • Assault
  • Aggravated assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Kidnapping
  • Terrorist threats
  • Carjacking
  • Arson

Analytical Upper Marlboro Assault Defense Lawyers

The best kind of criminal defense, we have found, is no defense at all. Instead of creating our own case, with our own evidence and testimony, we focus on taking the prosecution's case apart. We make careful analysis of the case the state is making, and we identify gaps, contradictions and implausible pieces. Very often, when you pull these threads away, the case falls apart.

That's the way we handle all cases at the Law Offices of Thomas C. Mooney. We prod and we poke, and look for weaknesses. In every case we try, whether it is murder one or driving under the influence, we seek to weaken the sense of certainty that you committed the crime you are charged with.

Many hundreds of our clients are better off because we represented them at a crucial moment in their lives. Our attorneys look forward to representing you with the same aggressiveness and intelligence.
