If you have questions regarding a Homicide case that is going to go to trial you need experienced trial counsel on your side. As someone who has tried seven homicide cases in the last four years. I have the experience to handle a Homicide case. Below I will explain the difference between hiring an Attorney for a Homicide case and hiring an Attorney for a Homicide trial which are very differennt.
When hiring an Attorney for a homicide it is important that the Attorney has handled Homicide cases and has tried some of those Homicides to verdict.
WHAT IS THE DIFFENCE BETWEEN HIRING A DEFENSE ATTORNEY FOR TRIAL OR AT THE BEGGINING OF A CASE?
When hiring an attorney at the beggining of a case you may be only hriing him up until a certain point in the case for example, you may hire him for a set amount of money up until the preliminary hearing is complete and then a new and seperate contract must be entered into for they purposes of trial. You can enter into a contract at the begginning of a case for the purposes of trial representation also, however this must be spcifically stated in the contract.
If you do not have a contract for trial at the beggining of the tiral then you willl either have to hire that Attorney again or you will have to have to find new representation or you will have to have your case assigned to the Public Defenders office for representation.
So at the beggining of your case make sure you understand what exactly your representation is for thand the terms of that representation. This is all very important and should be handles at the beggining of your case. If you have questions give us a call at 559 441 -1418
