While the exact definition of the crime varies depending on the jurisdiction, the consequences of a murder conviction are severe. Many courts distinguish between murder such as 1st Degree which is viewed as a premeditated crime, 2nd Degree which is not premeditated and manslaughter, which is a less serious offense, so it is important to have an experienced and aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney on your side.
There may be numerous defenses in a murder case to improve the outcome, including: self-defense, insufficient proof or evidence, factual innocence, insanity, and more. An experienced Defense Lawyer will gather evidence in your favor and, depending on the facts may be able get the charges reduced or even dismissed A Criminal Defense Attorney will work to reduce any penalties you ay face, negotiate with the Prosecutor, and devise other strategies to improve the outcome of your case. Probably not the best time to go it alone.
