Murder Defense Attorney in Sarasota
Contact My Firm as Soon as Possible
As the most severe of all violent crimes, murder is defined as the unlawful killing of another human being. Under Florida Statutes § 782.04, murder can be a premeditated act or committed during the course of another crime. An individual can only be proven guilty of murder if the state of Florida can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that it was a premeditated murder. An individual's decision to kill during the course of the murder has to be proven. You must take immediate action to protect your freedom if you have been charged with this crime.

I can use all of my experience and the knowledge I have gained as a Sarasota criminal defense lawyer to develop a strong strategy on your behalf.
Possible defenses to the violent crime of murder may include factors such as:
- Cause of death
Whether you have been charged with first- or second-degree murder or manslaughter, I can help you create a defense that gives you the best chance of having your charges reduced or dismissed. Florida's penalties for murder are very severe. The death penalty may be sought if you are convicted of first-degree murder.
