Michigan Homicide Lawyer
Murder charges are different from most other criminal law charges because:
- There is not a victim who can testify.
- If there is not any evidence, the case may come down to circumstantial evidence.
- It is what the defendant says or does (or doesn't) do that determines if he or she is convicted.
- The penalty is very severe.
It is important to have a lawyer help you fight your murder charge. I fight hard for my clients every day, and prosecutors and police know that I do everything I can to help my clients try to win their cases.
