Attorneys Handling Murder Charges
If you have been charged with murder, the attorney you choose may be the most important decision you ever make. Knowing who to trust to protect your freedom and future is a difficult decision. The consequences of murder charges are so serious that many criminal defense attorneys do not handle homicide cases.
When making a decision about an attorney, ask the following questions:
- Is the attorney experienced
- Is the attorney dedicated
- Is the attorney ready to fight for you
