The consequences of a conviction are the harshest under the law, including life in prison and even the death sentence. Consulting with an experienced defense lawyer can help you understand your rights and your options.

At Shook & Gunter, our attorneys have extensive experience defending clients against murder charges and other homicide charges. As former prosecutors, we know how prosecutors approach capital murder, murder and manslaughter cases. This knowledge allows us to anticipate their strategies and build effective defense cases for our clients.
