Need Defense Against a Murder Charge? You need Attorneys Certified to handle These Charges

The most serious criminal charge, murder, can carry the risk of the most serious of all penalties: death. The state of Illinois believes these matters need to be handled with great care.

This means we have the energy, the experience and the knowledge to defend people accused of murder and facing the death penalty.

Murder or Memory?

One of the most noteworthy cases we have handled involved a minor who confessed to the murder of a young girl. To get the confession, the police used an interesting technique: hypnosis. We brought in a wide range of experts on the topic and were able to demonstrate that this confession was not accurate. Our young client was able to walk away from these horrible charges and a television movie was made about the case.*
