Homicide Defense Lawyer 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 result in severe prison sentences. Prosecutors almost always seek the maximum penalty in homicide cases. 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.

One example of Mr. Bederow’s successful defense in a high-profile murder case is when he 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 the trial because their case had been eviscerated.
