Providing Zealous Defense
For Over 25 years


If you are facing homicide charges, you need a skilled homicide attorney with experience in the local courts where your case will be tried. Murder cases get a lot of attention in the media, which places a great deal of pressure on police and prosecutors to solve cases and secure convictions.

Why Should You Care How Police And Prosecutors Feel?

Because this pressure is going to make them very aggressive in pursuing charges against you.

Police may even violate your rights by using illegal and coercive interrogation methods, gathering evidence by an illegal search and seizure, or pressuring eyewitnesses to commit to identifications they really aren’t 100 percent confident making. And prosecutors will no doubt push for the harshest possible penalties.

You May Be Wondering: How Do I Even The Playing Field?

The best way to ensure that overzealous police and prosecutors don’t create an unfair advantage for themselves in your case is to hire a skilled homicide attorney from The Mattern Law Firm to defend you. We will not only scrutinize every piece of evidence presented by the prosecution to ensure it is admissible, we will also perform our own investigation to look for new evidence that could support your defense.

Let Us Identify the Best Strategy for Your Case

At The Mattern Law Firm, we promise to work hard to achieve the best possible result for your case when you hire us as your homicide lawyer. Ideally, this would be a dismissal of charges or a not guilty verdict at trial. If the evidence supports this approach, we will do everything in our power to achieve your freedom.

However, if the evidence in your case is very strong, the next best strategy may be to pursue a reduction of the charges. For example, if we can prove that your action was not premeditated, this would reduce the charge from first-degree murder to voluntary manslaughter. This would reduce the penalties for the crime significantly.

We are well-versed in the law on all kinds of charges related to murder and we can build a strong defense for any of them:

  • First degree murder
  • Capital murder
  • Second degree murder
  • Felony-murder
  • Gang murder
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Involuntary manslaughter
  • DUI murder
  • Vehicular manslaughter
