Defending Homicide Charges
If police accused you of killing someone, contacting the right attorney may be the single most critical thing you do in your life. If your loved one’s life is on the line, there is no room to settle for an advocate who is anything less than first-rate. Our founding attorney, Adam C. Stone, is a skilled homicide defense lawyer. He has the skill to handle capital death penalty cases, and he knows how to build a strong defense strategy.
If you face a murder charge, it is imperative that you exercise your right to remain silent before you get a chance to talk to your attorney. Regardless of the pressure that you feel from others to talk about the charges, it is a constitutional right to remain silent. At Eyer Stone, LTD, we are always on standby and available to take on your case.
What Are My Homicide Defense Options?
Homicide charges carry the strictest penalties, but the burden of proof is on the prosecution. You are innocent until proven guilty. The prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you not only took someone’s life but you also took that person’s life under the circumstances that the prosecution alleges.
We are able to represent individuals facing a range of homicide charges, including:
- Aggravated murder
- Voluntary and involuntary manslaughter
- Aggravated vehicular manslaughter
There is so much more to question beyond whether you intentionally or unintentionally took another person’s life. If you retain our law firm’s representation, we will conduct an investigation that inspects every single element of the charge: What evidence does the prosecution have against you? How did they collect that evidence? Did authorities legally obtain the evidence? What were the circumstances leading up to the incident? Were you threatened? Were you impaired? Were you of sound mind?
