Murder/Homicide

Serious Charges Call For A Serious Legal Defense

Murder and homicide charges are the most serious charges a defendant can face. The state's attorneys aggressively pursue these high-profile cases and will often overcharge as a strategic move. Unfortunately, this leaves many defendants in an unfair position, especially if they do not have solid legal representation.

If you are facing murder or homicide charges in Wisconsin, you risk life in prison. In fact, some murder charges carry a mandatory life sentence upon conviction. Because your entire future may rest upon the outcome of your case, it is important to carefully consider whom you choose as your legal representation. The right criminal defense attorney can mean the difference between your freedom and permanent incarceration.
