Murder & Attempted Murder Charges
While murder is one of the worst criminal charges anyone could face, not all killings are intentional or carried out with "malice aforethought " or are "premeditated." There are situations where someone's life is in severe danger, or where someone else's life is in serious danger and the person kills to protect themselves or to protect someone else. This can happen in a domestic violence situation where the victim has endured years of physical abuse and they kill their attacker in self defense, or this can happen when a parent kills another parent in order to protect their child from violent abuse.
With all murder and manslaughter cases, there is always a backstory and as your defense firm, it is our job to explain what happened and what circumstances led you to do what you did. Unless of course you are innocent, then it's our job to prove that you are innocent of your charges. Since the state of Ohio does have the death penalty, it's extremely important that you enlist the services of the best attorney you can find. You don't want to leave your life in the hands of an overburdened or a young and inexperienced public defender, you need someone who has the knowledge and experience to put doubt in the minds of the jury members and someone that will be dedicated to securing the best possible outcome at all costs; your life and liberty depend entirely on the skills and abilities of your criminal defense attorney and this cannot be stressed enough.
Being accused of murder or attempted murder is one of the most serious charges you can face. The consequences may be dire, including lengthy prison sentences, life in prison, or even the death penalty. In the face of such a serious situation, you need to exercise your right to an attorney who can help you understand your legal rights, ensure that you are treated fairly by law enforcement and the courts, and who can investigate your case and develop an effective strategy for your defense.
A qualified attorney at our firm will work to reconstruct what happened in the incident which led to the charges. We will review forensic evidence and other important matters such as DNA analysis, witness and police reports, and any other evidence which is pertinent to your defense. Our firm can evaluate all of this together to create a relevant defense. Working to expose weaknesses and flaws in the case against you, you can expect that our legal team will remain persistent until the end.
