Capital Defense Attorney

Death penalty cases, which are also referred to as capital cases, are extremely serious and require the attention of an attorney who has specific experience defending against the imposition of the death penalty. Given the gravity of the charge, it is essential to work with an attorney capable of dealing with the sophisticated Constitutional issues and specialized procedures that occur in these cases.
