RI Criminal Defense Attorney

Criminal charges in federal or state court stemming from violent encounters can carry very serious penalties. Any time a person's life is lost or a person is severely injured, the courts and the prosecution are going to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

If you were involved in a situation in which someone was killed or injured and you are now facing criminal charges in federal or state court, you need to take all available action to protect yourself against a system that is not designed to protect your rights or your best interests.

While you have legal rights, you need to assert them immediately. Too often people with no or inadequate legal representation learn afterward that they were not treated fairly. A skilled criminal defense attorney can help ensure that the prosecution respects your rights and that you have the best chance at securing a resolution to your charges that allows you to move on with your life.

I offer my skilled and experienced criminal defense representation in federal and state court to those facing violent crime charges such as:

  • Assault and battery
  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Assault with a deadly weapon

Skilled Defense from a Former Prosecutor

I am Attorney Terence Livingston. I spent years serving in the Rhode Island Attorney General's office as a prosecutor. During that time and in the time since, I have built a strong reputation among the judges and attorneys for providing capable and competent legal representation for each and every one of my clients.

I know the challenges of building a strong defense against violent criminal charges, and I take all steps necessary to be able to truly help my clients. This includes working with a team of investigators to help me uncover evidence that the police may have overlooked during their investigation. Too often, assault charges and other violent crime charges can hinge on conflicting reports from various witnesses. I always work to ensure the judge and juries in federal or state court are aware of all exculpatory evidence that will benefit my client.
