What is Your Experience Defending People Accused of Murder?

I've been handling homicide cases for many years, starting with being a prosecutor in New York during which time I spent a year prosecuting nothing but homicide cases. I know how the prosecutors think. I know what the judges are concerned about. I know the defenses. I know the tactics. I also know how to get that steel in your gut so that you can vigorously, no matter what accusations there are, defend your client to the best of your ability.

What are the Chances of Being Acquitted in a Murder Case in Massachusetts?

Your chances for acquittal in a murder case are going depend on the circumstances and the strength of the prosecution's case, as well as your defense. You could have the weakest case in the world against you, but if you have an attorney that doesn't know how to handle the case, you can be convicted. So the important thing, assuming you want to avoid life in prison, get the right attorney, an experienced attorney, who knows what they're doing, to represent you, and fight.

What Constitutes Self Defense in a Murder Case in Massachusetts?

Self-defense is an interesting defense, particularly in Massachusetts. The bottom line of self-defense is that you are only justified in defending yourself with the same type of force of that which is being used against you. So, if someone comes at me with a stick, and they're going to hit me, if I pick up my AK-47 and blow them away, self defense is not going to work so well.

Client Reviews
Dear Sam, I can not thank you enough for your expertise in the handling of Chris's case as well as your sensitivity and caring attitude. toward him. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. He really expressed how good it felt to be able to talk to you! Sincerely and may God bless you. Pat W.
I really appreciate your prompt and highly effective assistance on this matter. After six different OUI attorneys told me that there was no way to recall the warrant and dismiss the charges against me without me returning to Mass from California, you managed to accomplish what they said was impossible. Thanks again! Neil D., Boston, MA
