A homicide attorney must know Texas homicide laws and employ that knowledge to help a client faced with a homicide chage. Though homicide cases are understandably serious, some if not all homicide crimes are subject to negotiations and mitigation. An experienced homicide defense attorney understands how prosecutors and police construct cases and the strategies they employ. A savvy homicide attorney can defend against those strategies to secure the rights of our clients.
To the layperson, homicide cases and murder are the same. But our knowledgeable homicide attorney will inform you that although there is a simple definition—a killing of one human being by another—the legal definitions that correspond with homicide crimes are complex. A knowledgeable homicide defense attorney thinks of homicide in various ways and with various legal distinctions such as excusable, criminal, and justifiable homicide, which includes valid legal defenses such as self-defense.
Our criminal defense lawyer and legal support staff are intimately familiar with how witness testimony is handled, how arrest procedures should go, and what, if any, inconsistencies occurred in the handling of evidence. We prepare your defense using our experience in dealing with homicide and similar serious crimes. Contact us for a consultation as soon as possible. A homicide defense attorney in our legal office is eager to provide the assistance you require. Contact McDermed Law Firm TODAY Online or at 254-652-3401 (Waco, Texas Office).
