Virginia Beach Homicide Defense Attorney

Dead body underneath police barrierThere is no more serious offense than a homicide. It goes without saying that society does not tolerate one person wrongfully taking the life of another. If you or a loved one is charged with murder then it is imperative that you receive legal representation immediately. We may be contacted online or by telephone.

Providing vigorous defense in Virginia murder cases

There are many different levels of homicide charges. These include:

  • First degree murder
  • Second degree murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Involuntary manslaughter
  • Felony murder

No area of law is more fact intensive than that involving the loss of life. After your preliminary hearing in General District Court, the felony charges will proceed in Circuit Court. These cases hinge on motivations, provocations, and several other facts. The admissibility of every piece of evidence will be highly scrutinized by the Court. Picking the right jury will be one of the most important issues in your life as the jurors will determine the final outcome. In short, you need an attorney who will pay your case the attention it deserves.
