Homicide

Homicide Charge Lawyers in New York City

You Deserve to Have an Experienced Attorney in Your Corner

No crime has higher stakes than murder. Other forms of homicide, such as manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide, also allow for the imposition of severe prison sentences. Prosecutors almost always seek the maximum penalty in cases alleging that a person has caused the death of another human being. Although New York no longer has the death penalty, in certain situations, the maximum sentence includes life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. In almost any murder case, a person will face a sentence of at least 25 years to life in state prison if convicted.

Because of the severity and seriousness of these charges, only the most skilled and experienced prosecutors handle these cases. If you or a loved one is facing a homicide charge, extremely skilled and qualified defense counsel is required. The Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C. is experienced in handling the most serious, complex, and high-profile criminal cases.

Call a New York City Criminal Lawyer.

Mr. Bederow has vast experience in issues critical to a proper homicide defense. He is skilled in factual investigation and assessing the strengths and weaknesses of a prosecutor's case. He has handled cases which have involved issues often related to homicide cases, such as self-defense, mental health issues, and the use of expert witnesses and scientific issues (including DNA evidence).

In one example of a successful defense in a high-profile murder case, Mr. Bederow represented a former FBI supervisor who was indicted by the Brooklyn District Attorney for four counts of murder under the theory that he passed secret government information to his informant, a notorious Mafia member, who then murdered four individuals. In a trial that attracted worldwide attention, the defense systematically and methodically destroyed the prosecution's case, witness by witness, through devastating cross-examination. This culminated in the prosecution moving to dismiss all charges in the middle of trial because their case had been eviscerated.

If you or a loved one is under investigation or has been arrested for homicide, contact Mr. Bederow at (212) 256-9491 in order to set up a consultation.
