Murder Defense Attorney in Sarasota

Experienced Defense Against Murder Charges in Florida

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.
