Violent Crime Offenses Need Serious Legal Representation

If you are convicted of a violent crime, you face the possibility of years, if not decades, in prison. When your freedom is on the line, now is not the time to save money on legal representation. You need a skilled, experienced criminal defense lawyer, someone who will challenge the prosecution’s evidence at every turn.

I am criminal defense lawyer Michael Culp, and I have defended against a wide range of criminal charges over the past 37 years. At Culp Law Office, P.L.C., in Des Moines, I have helped individuals throughout central Iowa who have been accused of any kind of violent crime, including the following:

  • Murder
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Involuntary manslaughter
  • Robbery
  • Assault
  • Willful injury

Defenses And Strategy


Given how these charges are very serious, I will leave no stone unturned. I will investigate the circumstances behind the charges and explore every potential defense to your charges, including self-defense.

I am always focused on mitigating your penalties and achieving the best possible resolution for your case, whether it is an acquittal at trial, a dismissal of some or all the charges, or a plea agreement that minimizes the worst penalties associated with the charges.
