Murder is the most serious crime an individual can be charged with. Not only is it a felony charge, with potential sentences range from 25 years to life imprisonment, but being convicted of murder can affect every area of your life, for the rest of your life. If you are charged with murder, your life is on the line. It's important that you take the time to talk to a criminal defense attorney that can help you.
In a murder case, the state will use all of its resources and will try to find a suspect as soon as it can. Because murder is such an emotionally and politically charged crime, it can lead to a wrongful charge against innocent people. Sometimes an individual may have acted in self-defense, in defense of others, or been involved in an accident in which nobody was at fault.
Once an individual is suspected of murder, the state will often dial in on that individual despite contradictory evidence. For this reason, it is important to not say anything to police until consulting with an attorney. Because murder cases are complex and take a long time, it is important to hire a lawyer who will put in the work to make sure you receive the best defense possible.
If you are facing murder charges, it's important to know how the system works, to protect your rights, to know what your options are, and the pros and cons of each and every choice. That's what we do.
