If you have been charged with murder or manslaughter, you need effective representation and you need it now. Here are two things you need to know. First, your ability to beat or negotiate down a charge will be based on the circumstances of the act and the skill of your attorney. Second, the number of attorneys in and around Louisville, Kentucky, who have legitimate, substantial experience in defending these serious charges, is very small. Choose wisely and do not settle for some lawyer who is going to learn the ropes on your case.
I am criminal defense attorney Timothy Denison, and I have been providing serious defense for serious crimes for almost 20 years. With over 100 jury trials under my belt, you can be confident that you are in capable hands.
When it comes to homicide, you will hear a lot of different terms tossed around: murder, manslaughter, voluntary, and involuntary, just to name a few. In a nutshell, it is the job of your defense attorney to look for ways to prove that you were unjustly charged or overcharged for a crime, and to develop a strategy that provides you with the best possible outcome.
I will aggressively explore every avenue of defense for you, including parlaying a murder charge into a manslaughter charge, proving that a homicide should be deemed justifiable because it was done in self-defense or defense of others, or requesting that charges be dropped entirely due to lack of evidence or improper investigative methods.
You need an experienced defense attorney who is not going to muddle through your case. Murder cases are serious and infrequent cases — most lawyers have not tried them before. With over 100 jury trials under my belt, this would not be my first rodeo.
Homicides are classified as felonies and, if you are found guilty, you will almost certainly serve substantial time in prison. Don’t take chances when selecting an attorney. To speak with an experienced manslaughter and murder defense lawyer, call me at 502-589-6916, or contact me online.
