About Murder Charges in Greenville, North Carolina
Burch Law Office takes on violent crime cases such as murder throughout Eastern North Carolina. We offer our legal services at any stage of a case, whether you are a suspect in an investigation, have already been arrested or have been charged with this serious crime. We recommend that you act quickly to retain our legal counsel, as we are most often more effective if we are able to become involved as early in the process as possible. In some cases our early intervention may mean that our client will avoid murder charges altogether or that we will be able to negotiate a fair plea bargain that protects our client from life in prison or the death penalty.
As murder charges are typically highly complex, they may be difficult to deal with. The prosecuting attorney must prove beyond all doubt that the defendant intentionally and willfully took another person's life or that the defendant caused the death of another during the commission of a serious felony offense such as robbery or kidnapping. All elements of the charge must be proven to secure a conviction, and a competent criminal lawyer at our Greenville law firm can use this to our client's advantage by working to find and expose any weakness in the District Attorney's case, no matter how small. It may turn the entire case around.
