Find a Amherst Homicide Attorney in your area

Have You Been Charged With the Crime of Homicide?

If you have been charged with the crime of homicide, then you will have the option to hire an Amherst homicide defense attorney or have one appointed to you. He or she can help protect your rights before and during trial.

The Crime of Homicide

A charge of homicide does not necessarily mean one intends to kill another. There are several types of homicide crimes and each vary by jurisdiction. Aside from the act, the alleged perpetrator’s intent is also extremely important. Depending upon the specifics of your case your attorney can help explain to you the charges against you and the various possible defenses to your case.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
