All Crimes Defended: All Alternatives Explored

Assault and homicide charges are an area of criminal defense where the protection of the rights of the accused is paramount. All too often, while the prosecution is building a case, confused would-be defendants who are nervous or unsure of their rights make statements that can turn a non-case into a catastrophe.

Homicide is generally defined as an unlawful killing of one human being by another. The level of a homicide charge is distinguished by the circumstances involved. If you are accused of any form of homicide, it is in your best interest to immediately contact a defense attorney who has the experience and knowledge to present an aggressive and vigorous defense.

An experienced defense attorney will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of the killing to determine whether there are legal and factual information that will affect the outcome of the case. A good defense can result in acquittal at trial or a significant reduction in charges.

When the stakes are high, clients need the most experienced representation. During my 30-plus years as a criminal defense attorney at both the state and federal levels, even for capital crimes, I've only once had a charge that wasn't brought down to the minimum possible sentence. I continue to represent clients who have been charged with:

  • Murder, attempted murder and manslaughter
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual assault
  • Resisting arrest
  • Robbery
  • Gang crimes
  • Child molestation

The key is that defendants do not have to talk to police investigators. With a comprehensive understanding of the rights of the accused, I perform what I call "standby counsel," making sure that all my clients' rights are protected. Whenever there is any question or gray area, I advise my clients about the optimal courses of action, giving them an inexpensive way to stay out of a lot of trouble. When clients come to me, we immediately take control of the evidence; I find that this greatly affects case outcomes.

Homicide and Murder Defense

Too many defendants who don't understand their rights will be questioned and actually volunteer information, turning a nonexistent case into an almost certain conviction for the prosecution. In assault cases, an investigation by the defense is often able to raise questions regarding the accusation:

  • What happened before and after the crime?
  • How long after the event did someone call the police?
  • Were there motivating factors or other variable that call the prosecution's case into question?

Thorough investigation, questioning and controlling the situation are hallmarks of my legal practice, and I have helped hundreds of clients obtain the best outcomes possible.
