The Consequences for a Murder Conviction are Severe

Homicide charges are among the most serious charges a person can face. A conviction for first-degree murder means that you will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of ever making parole. Even a lesser charge of manslaughter can result in a prison sentence of up to 15 years. When everything is on the line, you need a lawyer on your side who understands how to challenge the prosecution's case and who will work tirelessly to build a strong defense against criminal charges.

We Defend Against all Murder Charges

We take on all types of homicide charges, including:

  • First- and second-degree murder
  • Conspiracy to commit murder
  • Criminal vehicular homicide
  • Voluntary and involuntary manslaughter
  • Attempted murder

Murder charges are complex and the type of defense strategy that needs to be used depends on what charges you are facing. We will walk you through every step of your case, explaining our strategy, its relative strengths and weaknesses, and what you can expect moving forward. You can rest assured that we will put all of our skills to work to help achieve the best possible results in your case.
