Attempted Murder Reduced in Domestic Violence Case

Attorney Metcalf represented a man charged with attempted murder after a heated altercation with his wife. It became clear that this was actually a domestic violence situation that got out of hand, but now he was in jeopardy of being sent to prison for a very long time. After aggressively negotiating with all the parties involved, attorney Metcalf arranged for his client to plea to a more appropriate charge of battery. This result spared the man from a very serious violent felony conviction.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
