Homicide Charges in North Carolina

Homicide charges are almost always tried before a jury, so we begin strategizing a client's defense with this in mind. We can evaluate your legal options and help you fight for the best possible outcome.

Our lawyers have a solid reputation for defending clients accused of:

  • First degree murder
  • Second degree murder
  • Felony murder
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Involuntary manslaughter

As former prosecutors, many members of our attorneys have seen how district attorneys plan the prosecution. This provides us with a distinct advantage when creating a defense. We defend a number of homicide cases each year and have the legal knowledge, skill, and resources to mount a strong defense for each client.

Exploring All Applicable Defenses

We consider all possible legal defenses, including innocence, a genuine accident, mistaken identity, insanity, self-defense, and other mitigating circumstances. Our decades of experience representing homicide defendants allows us to evaluate your options and develop a thorough defense strategy for your situation. When a case results in a conviction, you may need to appeal the decision. We represent clients in appellate court, so we are experienced in preserving appellate issues at trial to successfully appeal cases for our clients.

When the stakes are high, call (336) 515-6552 for legal representation from a distinguished homicide defense lawyer in Winston-Salem.
