Attorney Ray Richards, Detroit, Michigan’s Premier Murder, Assault & Weapons Defense Lawyer

If you have been arrested for or charged with committing a violent or assaultive crime, you need an aggressive criminal defense attorney to protect your rights. Attorney Ray E. Richards II will work tirelessly to defend your best interests against assault-related charges. You cannot afford to choose your attorney carelessly. I have the knowledge and experience to do the job right. Your freedom or that of your loved one may depend on it.

When you are facing the possibility of significant prison time, you want a lawyer who knows the criminal justice system. You want someone who will fight for your rights every step of the way. With 19 years of experience defending people accused of, arrested for, or charged with various assaultive and violent crimes, including:

  • Murder
  • Attempted Murder
  • Assault with a Deadly Weapon
  • Assault & Battery – Misdemeanor
  • Assault causing serious bodily injury
  • Domestic Assault
  • Voluntary / Involuntary Manslaughter
  • Vehicular Manslaughter

Self defense or defense of others or property can be a complete defense to any battery charge – no matter how serious. I know that the police often listen only to the first person who calls 911. I will vigorously defend all self-defense cases, it’s an inherent right to defend oneself.

With most assaultive offense cases, a weapon of some sort usually is involved. Possession of a weapon or use of a weapon for an unlawful or assaultive purpose with the intent to harm is a crime. Our experienced representation of those charges with the possession, use or sale of an illegal weapon in the state and federal courts, is quite extensive and notable.
