Being accused of taking another person’s life is an extremely serious matter. If you have been charged with murder, homicide, or negligent homicide, you face perhaps the most severe punishments for any crime. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side to protect your freedom and ensure that your rights are not violated through the criminal justice system.
Serious Defense Against Serious Charges
At Barberi Law, based in Mount Pleasant, we understand that facing serious criminal charges can be frightening and frustrating. Our firm has a former prosecutor on our defense team. Our skilled attorneys can carefully examine the case against you and provide valuable insight and answers to your questions, including:
- What penalties do I face?
- What are the differences between the charges murder in the first degree and murder in the second degree?
- What is the difference between murder and homicide?
- What about vehicular homicide?
Possible Defenses to a Charge of Murder
The prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt your intent when it is alleged you committed the crime. As your defense attorneys, we will carefully examine your charges and all the evidence to develop a strong case on your behalf. We will challenge evidence at every turn. Your defense might ultimately take on many characteristics such as self-defense, defense of another, or an accident.
Why an Experienced Attorney Is So Important
If you are convicted of homicide or murder, your freedom, and likely the remainder of your life, will be affected. With such severe potential consequences, many lawyers choose not to accept murder defense cases. At Barberi Law, we have a former prosecutor who understands the nature of proving a murder charge and the devastating penalties you face. We are prepared to fully investigate your case and develop an effective defense.
