What to Do if You’re Charged with First Degree Murder

If you have been charged with First Degree Murder, you’re going to require a skilled Phoenix Defense Lawyer.

The two (2) most often seen defenses to First Degree Murder are “Self-Defense” (i.e., Justification) and “Supervening Cause”. Self-Defense would involve the use of deadly force in order to protect oneself against a person who is threatening or using deadly force against them. In regards to a “Supervening Cause”, this would include an error by emergency treating personnel, or a hospital error which caused the person’s death. These cases are so complex that they require a litany of defense tools. For example, private investigators; gunshot residue experts; DNA experts; accident reconstruction experts; human factors experts, just to name of few. David Michael Cantor is “Death Penalty Qualified”. This means he has “first-chaired” and has been substantially involved in Capital Murder Trials in the past.
