You Need an Attorney to Fight Your Murder/Homicide Charge

If you’re facing murder charges in Middle Tennessee, contact Lords & Cate to discuss your case.

You need to hire a defense attorney immediately

Murder/homicide is probably the most serious charge you can face. A murder conviction carries some of the harshest punishments; you could spend the rest of your life in prison and even face the death penalty. Our team of criminal defense attorneys provides effective representation for individuals charged with murder or homicide in State Court.

What to expect when you hire our team

When you retain our services, we begin an exhaustive investigation into the circumstances surrounding your case. We will break down every element of the charge and investigate each element fully and completely. In this process we are looking for errors committed by law enforcement, violations of your constitutional rights. When discovered, we use these issues to try and suppress the evidence the state has.

If necessary, and typically it is, we employ the services of experts to challenge the State’s evidence against you. These experts include ballistics, blood, and even DNA experts.

Our criminal defense team knows the seriousness of the charge of murder or homicide and prepares for each case as if it were going to trial. We will, however, use our negotiating skills first to try to work out a deal with the State in order to reach your best possible outcome without going to trial. Being fully prepared for trial will allow us to negotiate from the strongest possible position, meaning we negotiate based on our terms, not the State’s.
