Murder refers to the criminal act of homicide where there was premeditation and intent. Due to the deliberate act, it is often met with some of the most severe penalties.

Work with a Criminal Firm Who Has Experience

Since we have handled these cases before, we know the best way to approach each case – we are not inexperienced lawyers with a shallow understanding. For example, we one handled a case where our client was charged for assault and battery with a deadly weapon after getting into a fight. At trial, the victim and an eyewitness testified that our client had been in an argument with the victim which led to a fight. Their testimony stated that our client took out a knife and slashed the victim’s head.

We were able to argue that our client fought in self-defense and that the wound on the victim’s forehead was actually from a fence that they had both fallen on. The jury came back after deliberation and declared out client not guilty on both charges. If you are looking for this level of legal service, we encourage you to contact us today.
