Eugene/Springfield Murder Defense Attorney
If you or a family member has been charged with Murder in Oregon, it is important to take swift legal action. Depending on the nature of the charge, you could face up to life in prison. While the Death Penalty is currently suspended, there is no guarantee that it will not be reinstated. Aggressive and immediate defense is absolutely necessary.
As a defense attorney with more than 30 years of experience, I know how to effectively defend against Murder, Homicide and Manslaughter charges. Consult with an experienced Eugene/Springfield Murder defense lawyer to learn about your rights and legal options.
Defending Against Homicide Charges
In handling a Homicide defense case, I immediately begin conducting a thorough investigation of the case, including identifying weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. I consult with mitigation experts who are trained to investigate and provide analysis on the life history of the defendant. Homicide cases may also require a mental health evaluation of the accused.
In the scope of my defense practice, I defend clients against charges of:
- Intentional Murder
- Attempted Murder
- Manslaughter charges
- Criminally Negligent Homicide
I hold the state to its burden of proof — to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. When appropriate, I consult with leading experts in psychology, ballistics, fingerprint analysis, accident reconstruction and other fields, who help me identity facts that support my clients’ cases.
