Georgia Murder Defense Attorney
If you have been arrested and charged in connection with someone’s death, there is no time to waste. It can be crucial for you to speak directly with a murder defense lawyer who can advise you of your rights and help you identify the most appropriate legal strategy. Prior to that, any conversation with investigators or law enforcement officials could be used against you in court. Since a single piece of evidence could determine a jury’s decision, a timely investigation of the homicide by your legal team may mean the difference in serving a lifetime in prison or proving your innocence. At Dove Law Firm, our trial attorneys provide criminal defense for charges to include:
MURDER DEFENSE ATTORNEYS.
- murder with malice
- DUI manslaughter
- voluntary manslaughter
- vehicular homicide
- felony murder
- involuntary manslaughter
Manslaughter Charges in Douglas & Fitzgerald
In Georgia, murder is the most severe homicide crime. While other states may divide murder into degrees based upon extenuating circumstances, Georgia law only recognizes the crime as murder. Conversely, if convicted of murder, the sentencing carries a minimum of life in prison. Based upon the evidence presented, more severe penalties can include life in prison without parole, or death. A manslaughter conviction is not as severe of a homicide as murder, but manslaughter is still a very serious crime and is punishable up to 20 years in prison. We provide expert criminal defense for the residents of Fitzgerald, Nashville, Tifton, Hazlehurst, Adel, Ashburn, Sylvester, Abbeville, Moultrie, McRae, Cordele, Ocilla and Douglas.
