Violent Crimes

Defending Those Accused Of Violent Crimes

Some of the most aggressively prosecuted criminal offenses are violent crimes. Given the severity of penalties associated with a violent crime conviction ― including lengthy prison sentences ― you need to contact an experienced attorney right away if you are facing such charges.

While other law firms may dabble in criminal defense, we at Clark and Glasgow, LLC focus our entire practice on it. With over 60 years of cumulative legal experience between David Reid Clark and Steven Glasgow, you would be hard-pressed to find a firm with more knowledgeable and skilled attorneys. The simple fact is that experience matters and when your future hangs in the balance due to an alleged violent crime, contact the attorneys who know what they are doing.

We Defend Against A Wide Variety Of Violent Crime Charges

Some of the violent crimes we handle at Clark and Glasgow, LLC include:

  • Murder, attempted murder and felony murder
  • Armed violence, including alleged criminal conduct involving firearms
  • Robbery
  • Home invasion
  • Assault and aggravated assault
  • Stalking and aggravated stalking
  • Battery, aggravated battery and domestic battery
  • Telephone and electronic harassment


The most important thing to remember when facing violent crime charges is to never attempt to resolve the matter by discussing it with police. In most cases, they are going to arrest you regardless of what you have to say. It also may inadvertently provide them with further evidence that they will use to convict you. If a police officer appears sympathetic, keep quiet, as he or she is likely building the criminal case against you.
