Accused of Murder? Only the Best Legal Team Will Suffice

Homicide defense attorney in Fairmont, Clarksburg, Morgantown and surrounding areas of West Virginia.

If you have been arrested, accused, or charged with murder, manslaughter, or homicide, or are being investigated for the death of someone, you face the most severe criminal penalties that the law allows. Much of the general public, as well as the legal community, view homicide as the most heinous of all crimes, and the mere accusation of committing homicide may tarnish your reputation forever. If convicted of first degree murder, you may be sentenced to spend the rest of your life in prison (without the possibility for parole). Whether you are innocent of the charges, committed the act but strongly believe that your act was necessary or justified, someone died as a result of an accident on your part, or you made a mistake, it is crucial to contact Whiteman Burdette, PLLC, of Fairmont, WV, immediately, as only the best legal team will suffice in this situation.

Homicide Charges? You Must be Proven Guilty Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

It is important to remember that you are presumed innocent unless the government’s prosecutor can prove you guilty beyond (and to the exclusion of) a reasonable doubt.

If your case moves to trial, we offer the aggressive legal representation necessary to present your case in the courtroom. We work to ensure that the jury is presented with the facts pertaining to your case, as well as made aware of applicable laws and the high burden of proof placed on the prosecutor, as required by the Constitution of the United States.
