Providing A Tough Defense Against Homicide Charges

Homicide allegations are perhaps the most serious criminal charges that an individual can face. Due to their complex nature and the fact that prosecutors aggressively pursue harsh penalties, these are cases that many criminal defense lawyers are hesitant to take. That's not the case, however, at The Law Offices of James A. Williams, L.L.C.

Before founding our law firm, attorney James. A Williams was a prosecutor who prosecuted over 100 homicide trials. He now uses this considerable criminal law and litigation experience to defend people against aggressive prosecutors and secure favorable outcomes for a variety of criminal offenses.

We Help You Fight Back Against Damaging Charges

By doing our own investigations, analyzing all of the evidence available to us and looking at all sides of the case, we are able to build strong defense strategies that withstand the highest level of court scrutiny. Jim Williams' expertise and 38 years of criminal law experience and knowledge help our firm find weakness in the prosecution and successfully defend our clients against a myriad of violent crimes, including but not limited to:

  • First-degree murder
  • Second-degree murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Negligent homicide
  • Vehicular homicide

In addition to addressing these damaging charges, we are also capable of handling any related criminal offenses, including gun charges that often accompany these types of charges.

What happens if I'm arrested? Because of the serious nature of many violent crimes, those who are accused often face public scrutiny and negative media attention from the moment allegations are made throughout the course of their case. To avoid potentially irreparable damage as a result of this negative coverage, we work quickly to develop a strong defense aimed at keeping your name out of the papers and the focus on justice, not wild allegations.

Showing You Your Options So You Can Stand Up To The Prosecution

Being charged with homicide can be a frightening experience. A conviction can put you in prison for decades, and the mere allegation can jeopardize your life, both personally and professionally. Prosecutors understand this and may use this fear to intimidate you or pressure you into accepting a quick plea deal that likely is not in your best interests.

It is important to know that a plea deal is not your only option; and in many circumstances, it is not always the best choice for most clients. At The Law Offices of James A. Williams, L.L.C., we will make sure you understand the full scope of your rights and options before taking the next steps in your defense. Our thorough, detail-oriented approach to handling murder charges and other violent crimes has helped us secure acquittals as well as reduced and dismissed charges for our clients over the years.

A proven record of success in court. Attorney Williams' record of successes in court — including acquittals for clients facing murder and other violent crime charges — speaks volumes about his thoroughness, strong defensive strategies and tenacity in the courtroom. His reputation for securing the best possible outcomes for his clients is the reason so many chooses our law firm to handle their high-profile criminal cases.
