Our specialist murder lawyers are uniquely placed to offer expert representation. We have a long established reputation in defending the most challenging murder, attempted murder and culpable homicide cases.
Murder cases can vary greatly, from a seemingly small fight in the street between two individuals where one goes on to die from their injuries to organised gangland executions. There are also incidents where a number of people are charged as part of a joint enterprise.
Our murder lawyers leave no stone unturned in preparing a case. These cases involve the most complex and wide ranging of police investigations. We thoroughly analyse all of the evidence and consider all issues pertinent to the case. This means every avenue is explored. Every witness is traced. Forensic evidence plays a large part in murder investigations. You can rely on our murder lawyers to instruct top forensic experts. Ballistics and firearms, blood splatter, DNA and fingerprint evidence is often relied upon. We adopt a thorough and analytical approach when instructing our forensic experts. Additionally the prosecution may have telephone records, CCTV, cell site analysis of mobile phone or vehicle movements. Our murder lawyers are skilled and experienced in dealing with this type of evidence. We can provide advice in relation to the instruction of defence experts to counter the prosecution case.
Our lawyers are well versed in the instruction of pathologists and medical experts in relation to the cause of death and infliction of injury which must be carefully considered and countered when appropriate.
We understand the intricacies of building a defence, cross examining prosecution witnesses and supplying expert evidence to the court.
There are complex issues in these cases, including intention, psychological/psychiatric issues, self-defence, causation, art and part guilt (joint enterprise) and conspiracy to murder.
Preparation is incredibly important and our murder lawyers will not rest until every avenue has been explored.
