Homicide charges may be answered with a self-defense claim

Taking another human's life is something that most people hope they never have to do. When you are facing a difficult decision of how to best protect yourself, you might not have a choice. If your life is in danger, you will do what it takes to save your own life. Even in this case, there is a chance that you might face a homicide charge.

We know that you might not think you should have to defend your actions since you were in fear for your life when you did what you had to do. Whether you shot someone or did something else, we can help you come up with a defense strategy that can show your side of what happened.

If you are claiming self-defense, you are likely facing an uphill battle. This challenge isn't for the fainthearted, especially if the prosecutor has people calling for severe punishments for the killing. One thing that can often come up in these cases is that the decedent's family members might be pushing for massive punishments. We can try to combat against this by putting together a defense that shows your side of the events.

As you are thinking about your defense, take the time to consider all options. If you do admit that you took someone's life, you might even consider entering into a plea agreement. This helps you learn about what penalties will be before the sentencing, which can give you a chance to plan for what's to come. We are here to help you from the start of the case through the final resolution.

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.
