Strong Defense Against The Most Serious Of Charges

Murder. Homicide. Manslaughter. No matter what terminology you use, the serious offenses associated with these words can change your life and the life of your family forever. At Napier & Napier, we work tirelessly to keep this from happening.

Since our law firm opened its doors in 1948, we have made it our goal to ensure that those who are accused of even the most serious offenses receive the excellent legal representation they deserve. At our firm, your case will be directly in the hands of a partner with more than 25 years of legal experience, not an inexperienced associate. Our advanced courtroom techniques and insightful discovery strategies have led to numerous acquittals for clients charged with homicide throughout New York.

Careful Counsel And A Relentless Defense

We understand that being charged with a homicide offense creates an exceptionally stressful situation in your life. With that in mind, we take the time to sit down and discuss your case with you and to walk you step by step through all of your options. Things that we frequently discuss with clients in these situations include:

Harsh sentences: When you are charged with murder, you face the possibility of a life sentence. Even lenient sentences can still land you in prison for more than 30 years. With so much on the line, it is vital to have an experienced lawyer on your side from the start of your case.

Prosecution resources: Murder charges are fiercely prosecuted, and an army of attorneys will be trying to achieve a conviction. We counter this by devoting the resources of our entire firm to your case, so that you have equally zealous advocates working for you.

Experience matters: To successfully defend against a murder or manslaughter charge, you need an attorney who fully understands the complex nature of homicide cases. An inexperienced attorney may miss some detail or defense theory that could make the difference in your case. With decades of experience and proven success in homicide cases on our side, you can rest assured that your case is in capable hands.
