Violent Crime Defense Strategies

Many times, violent criminal charges such as aggravated assault or manslaughter result when the accused was simply acting in self-defense. With the facts on our side that you were threatened and felt in danger for yourself or others, we can work to show the prosecution and a jury that you used a reasonable amount of force to protect your well-being and/or the well-being of the people around you.

Our Nashville violent crime attorneys have handled a variety of murder cases. Not all have been capital cases, but we recognize the seriousness of a capital murder charge. If you are facing the death penalty, we don't have to tell you how important it is to have a criminal defense attorney who has access to the resources needed to prepare the best possible case. May McKinney provides cutting-edge representation, using mock juries to evaluate and strengthen your defense.
