Homicide


What is Homicide: Homicide includes the crimes of Murder 1st degree, Felony Murder, Murder 2nd degree, Voluntary Manslaughter, Involuntary Manslaughter, and Negligent Homicide.  Some examples of the many defenses to homicide are: Alibi, Lack of Intent, Accident, Self-Defense, Temporary or Permanent Insanity, Diminished Capacity, and Duress.   Additionally, the government has the burden of proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant was the person who committed the crime.

How we handle your case: After getting all of the information from our client and the police reports, we evaluate the case to determine whether there is a basis to have the case dismissed.  If not, then we evaluate the case to determine whether we can go to trial with some reasonable chance of success.  If not, then we seek a plea agreement and sentence agreement, which would result in a conviction of a less serious offense and result in less serious penalties.

Our focus is always to avoid a conviction, if possible.  If that is not possible, then to seek a conviction of the least serious offense while minimizing our client’s sentence.

If you are charged with homicide, it is essential that you retain a competent and experienced attorney.

People come to me when they have problems. My job is to help people solve their problems, and I have been doing that for over 45 years (since 1975). I began practicing law in 1975 when I became an assistant prosecutor for Ingham County. While there, I was the Chief Attorney for the Priority Prosecution Unit.
