Justice Tip Against You

Pay attention to facts and presentation methods in your defense

Facing murder charges can mean that your own life is on the line if that charge is in the first degree. This is a serious matter because you can end up behind bars for the remainder of your natural life. When you are in this position, you have to think carefully about what you are going to do. There are usually several options that you can explore in these cases.

When you are going through the options, you can't think in general terms. Instead, think about everything in terms of your own case. Unless you are reviewing a case with the exact same circumstances as your own, you can't count on what happened to them happening to you. With this in mind, you have to try to plan even the smallest detail as you work on the defense strategy.

As you work on planning your defense, you need to try to think like the jury. You can't assume that everyone is going to think like you. When you are trying to determine how to present things to the court, you need to consider the perception of what you are saying. It is possible that changing the presentation of facts might have an impact on how those are received by the people who will decide your fate.

Of course, not all murder cases go before the jury. You might admit that you took someone's life and may be willing to consider a plea deal. If you are thinking of a plea deal, make sure that you look into how this decision is going to affect your future.

What Our Clients Say

“Matt Swain helped me out of a situation that would have otherwise cost me money I didn't have, and precious time I couldn't spare. And he did it selflessly. If I ever need to turn to an attorney in the future, he would be my first call. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Norman/OKC area! His entire staff was kind and helpful from day one. Thank you all so much!�—Laura M.
