A Solid Defense When You Need It Most
If you or your loved one has been charged with murder, you don’t need to hear how serious the situation is or how much is at stake. What you do need to hear is that the defense lawyer you choose can make all of the difference in your case.

We Can Protect Your Innocence While Preserving Your Future
Thomas Damico and Brent Stockstill, our homicide defense lawyers, will use effective strategies to make sure that your side of the story gets heard in court. As a result, the charges against you may be reduced or you could receive an acquittal.
For example, murder charges may be reduced to negligent homicide or manslaughter charges, taking away the threat of the death penalty or life in prison, while a “not guilty” verdict could give you your life back.
As with many other criminal cases, there are certain aggravating factors that can make the charges you face ever more serious, such as:
Being accused of multiple crimes (such as robbery or rape in addition to murder)
Being accused of using a weapon when the crime was committed
Having a previous criminal record
In these cases, even if it is not possible to challenge the evidence surrounding the actual murder, it may still be possible to challenge the evidence pertaining to the aggravating factors, which can greatly reduce the sentence you face. We work with each client to obtain the most favorable results, based on their facts.
A Strong Defense Throughout The Entire Case
The defense strategy we provide will protect your rights both inside and outside of the courtroom. We provide effective pre-indictment representation to ensure that overambitious law enforcement officers do not violate your rights during their investigations. We also do what is necessary to protect your confidentiality. When probed by the media for comment, we are skilled in keeping the attention away from you or your case.
