Murder Lawyer Serving the Miami Area
Murder charges are some of the most severe criminal charges you can face here in Miami. The penalties for a murder or homicide conviction can include a life-time prison sentence, substantial fines and other extremely harsh penalties. We have many defense strategies we can use to help you fight such charges. For example, if you had to use deadly force to defend yourself against an attack or protect your family from a predator who was committing a felony in your home, your actions may be a justifiable use of deadly force. If an unfortunate death occurred as a result of negligence or during a crime of passion, we will work to get your charges reduced to manslaughter. If you killed your spouse after being forced to endure years of domestic violence and abuse, we can build a defense based on the assertion that the death was an "excusable homicide." It is not always easy in cases like these for law enforcement officers to differentiate the victim from the suspect, our firm will work diligently to uncover the evidence needed to help fight the accusations and charges against you.
There are also some instances, such as in attempted felony murder cases, when an individual can be charged for a criminal act despite the fact that he or she did not directly participate in the commission of a felony crime. In certain cases simply assisting another individual in the commission of a felony offense, which then results in serious injury or death, may be enough to warrant attempted felony murder charges. Without a skilled lawyer you can trust to aggressively defend your interests, there is little chance that you will be able to get the charges against you reduced, dismissed, or acquitted at trial. If you are facing murder or homicide charges, contact Seltzer Law, P.A. and schedule to discuss your case with a Miami murder lawyer as soon as possible.
