V. Erik Petersen

Assault and Homicide

Pennsylvania Assault Defense Attorney

There is a perception that people accused of a crime are guilty. At the Law Offices of V. Erik Petersen, I recognize that people who face serious charges like Homicide, Aggravated Assault or Kidnapping are sometimes falsely accused. I also recognize that the stakes are extremely high. As a former Assistant District Attorney and now as a private lawyer, I have handled and tried many cases involving these types of serious charges. I have the knowledge and tenacity to challenge the prosecutor and protect your constitutional rights. For a free consultation,
contact the Law Offices of V. Erik Petersen today.

Assault and Battery Defense
I handle assault cases that involve

    * Homicide
    * Attempted Murder
    * Vehicular Homicide
    * Domestic Assault, including Spousal Sexual Assault
    * Sexual Assault, also known as Rape or Involuntary Deviate Sexual Intercourse
    * Indecent Assault

If you are accused of Assault or Homicide

First, be civil and polite to the authorities. However, do not answer any of their questions. Even if you think you are "clearing something up," whatever you say can and will be used against you later on. Assert your right to remain silent, one of your Miranda rights, and request to speak to your lawyer. Furthermore, do not sign any statements without clearing it with your lawyer first.

Lastly, call me as soon as possible. Developing a defense in these cases is a complicated affair. Long hard hours are required when it comes to defending Homicides and other violent crime. I am willing to take all the time necessary to achieve the best possible result. I also work with top-notch investigators who are willing to go out in the evening, knock on doors, and gather witnesses. The sooner you contact me, the sooner I can begin building your case.
