About Homicide Charges
Beating homicide charges is no easy task. Our skilled and seasoned team of defense lawyers will review all the facts of your case and the evidence presented by the prosecution, and they will exploit every deficiency to convince the jury that the government has failed in its obligation to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. They will attack every part of the prosecution’s case to create that doubt.
Each type of homicide charge is different, and the prosecution determines what charges to bring based on their assessment of your intentions, behavior and the context of the incident. The line between first-degree and second-degree murder is a thin one but the punishments for a conviction can vary from death to a term of 10 years. We will work tirelessly to prove your innocence and in some cases, we can help reduce the severity of the charges against you and reduce or remove your risk of imprisonment.
