Baltimore Murder Attorney

Homicide, 1st Degree Murder, 2nd Degree Murder

The most serious charge an individual can face in Maryland is that of murder. If convicted the sentence may be as severe as life in prison or the death penalty. Any homicide, accidental or premeditated, meets with a strong emotional response by the public and by the authorities. This creates a far greater challenge in criminal defense than other types of cases. You will need a Baltimore criminal attorney who can and will vigorously protect your rights and is firmly on your side for the duration.

Murder Defense Lawyer in Baltimore

The right time to look for legal representation is right now. Constructing a powerful homicide defense takes extensive investigation into the facts and careful analysis of weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. There are a variety of types of defense possible. Some examples are insanity, factual innocence, defense of another, and self-defense. Since every case is unique, the defense strategy must be tailor-made to fit the facts and the execution strategically planned to gain the most positive effect. Richard S.
