Experienced New Jersey Homicide Defense Lawyer
Skillfully fighting homicide charges
A defendant charged with a homicide faces a lifetime of incarceration, or in some cases, death. You need an attorney who is determined and serious about fighting for you, and who has the experience and knowledge to succeed. The The Law Office of Dwight H Simon Day LLC defends individuals in the criminal justice system and I am a true advocate for the rights of defendants charged with homicide.
A homicide investigation often involves the collection and analysis of extensive scientific evidence. Because jurors tend to put substantial faith in the reliability and conclusiveness of science, forensic evidence is one of the most powerful tools in the courtroom. During my meticulous review of autopsy records, blood splatter and gunpowder analyses, firearm tests, DNA reports and other hard scientific documents, I seek to turn the prosecution’s evidence into a persuasive defense tactic.
Reducing a murder charge
The prosecution must show the element of intent for a first-degree murder conviction. Disproving intent can lower the degree of the charge and minimize the sentence imposed. I strategize whether it is in my client’s best interest to request a lesser included lower-degree homicide charge as an option for the jury.
