We will examine all the options in defending your case. Some of them include:
- Identification issues — We may dispute the evidence by which the police have linked you to the crime. Eyewitness accounts have been shown to be unreliable. Other evidence must be carefully scrutinized.
- Tool mark analysis — Also known as ballistics, this method for matching a cartridge to the gun it was ejected from is far from perfect. We will work with a respected expert who can explain why the results of this analysis are not credible.
- Overcharging: — Prosecutors may charge suspects with first-degree murder when the facts do not support it. We are frequently successful in getting first-degree murder charges reduced to lesser crimes that are not punishable by the death penalty such as second-degree murder or manslaughter.
