Brooklyn Homicide Attorney
Aggressive Defense to Protect Your Freedom
If you have been charged with murder, you need a lawyer on your case from day one. Mistakes made early in your case can result in wrongful conviction and a lengthy prison sentence for something you didn't even do. Less than five percent of all criminal lawyers have ever tried a single case involving a homicide. At The Law Offices of Wilson Antonio LaFaurie, our Brooklyn homicide attorney has represented defendants accused of murder spanning New York state, including Brooklyn, New York, Queens, Suffolk, Nassau, and the Bronx.
From our law office in Brooklyn, we represent clients throughout the New York City area who face murder charges, including negligent homicide.
The legislature in the state of New York and the common law have carved the following defenses:
- Extreme emotional disturbance
Each and every one of these defenses must be contemplated when confronting a murder or other violent crime charge.
Murder & Homicide Cases We Handle
The consequences associated with a homicide conviction can destroy your life. As a former assistant district attorney, Attorney Wilson LaFaurie has successfully represented individuals throughout the state who were charged with a variety of these kinds of crimes.
We handle charges such as:
- First and second degree murder
- Criminally negligent homicide
- Aggravated criminally negligent homicide
Murder in New York is punishable by a prison sentence of 15 years to life. Manslaughter, which is causing someone's death without the intent of killing him or her, is punishable by 15 to 25 years in prison. Vehicular manslaughter, which is causing a person's death by recklessness such as driving while intoxicated or discharging a firearm into the air, is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
In addition to representing defendants in murder cases, our criminal defense lawyer also represent clients facing manslaughter charges.
Don't Speak To Police without a Lawyer Present
When so much is at stake, you should not say anything to police before speaking to an attorney. Police may say they only want to get your side of the story. However, police usually know more than they are telling you. There is nothing you can say that will help your case, and you could end up giving police the evidence they need to charge you. Once you have a lawyer present, police questioning will stop.
