Murder charges require an attorney who will not only provide you with serious criminal defense representation, but will also take the time to determine what factors led up to these charges. In order to mount an effective murder defense, an attorney needs to ensure your rights were not violated, your confidentiality is protected, and also understand all of the facts surrounding your case.

Murder charges can stem from an automobile accident, a fight that went out of control, or simply from being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The facts surrounding your case are very important and may help us determine how to mount a defense.

As with every case, it is imperative that all evidence be reviewed and analyzed to determine what exactly happened. In addition, witness statements, conditions under which a police investigation was conducted and a whole host of other issues must be evaluated.

A guilty finding in a murder charge has serious long-term ramifications including loss of freedom. These charges are not something that you take lightly and we certainly will not either. If you are arrested and charged with murder, contact the Law Office of Nicholas J. Muscarello at (985) 345-1010 before you make any statement to a law enforcement officer which could jeopardize your case.
