Defending Against Murder Charges in New York City

In most cases, when basic rights are violated in an arrest or in the process of gathering evidence, it can result in a complete dismissal of any case against you. There are several defenses for a murder charge, including:

  • Mistaken identity: where they charged the wrong person, this is a viable defense if you did not actually commit the murder.
  • A justified homicide: protecting oneself or another person is not murder and could lead to murder charges being dropped.
  • Accidental death: death due to unfortunate circumstances does not constitute murder.

A professional and creative New York City criminal lawyer will evaluate every detail of any investigation or case against you and will work with you to provide the best possible defense for your unique situation.
