Violent Crime Defense From A Former Prosecutor
South Carolina does not go easy on people accused of violent crimes. If you have been charged with a violent crime, you can be certain that prosecutors will do everything possible to see that you are convicted and that you face serious consequences such as incarceration and fines. You have the right to defend yourself. I can help. I am George B. Bishop, Jr., a Berkeley County violent crimes lawyer and former prosecutor.
No matter what you have been accused of, you need an advocate who is willing to work hard to defend you. With your future on the line, I am prepared to pursue a positive outcome through whatever path is required. Many violent crime cases are resolved through negotiation, and I am skilled at reaching favorable plea bargains. However, I am also a trial attorney with a reputation for success in the courtroom.
What Violent Crime Have You Been Accused Of?
With more than 30 years of criminal law experience, I can defend against charges of:
- Sexual assault and rape
- Domestic violence
- Armed robbery
As a former prosecutor, I understand how my opponents operate in violent crime cases. I am trained in their methods. I have used their methods. I know the strengths of their methods and, more importantly, I know the weaknesses. When they present evidence, I know how to examine it and find its flaws, pursuing every opportunity to better the outcome for you.
