Murder is defined in Georgia as “the unlawful killing with malice aforethought.” “Malice aforethought” is the “deliberate intention to take another’s life.”
Georgia is one of the few states that does not classify murder as 1st Degree [cold-blooded killings] and 2nd Degree [reckless disregard for human life]. In Georgia, any killing with malice or a killing without provocation is murder. The severity of the punishment will depend on the seriousness of the surrounding circumstances
Providing criminal defense is something I take very seriously. I know I am holding a person’s future in my hands
In Georgia, murder and manslaughter are serious offenses. If convicted of murder, your life may be at stake. Under state law, convicted murders get a minimum of life in prison and may be sentenced to the death penalty.
When you have been charged with homicide or are under investigation for killing another person, you want aggressive representation from an experienced, knowledgeable and skilled lawyer.
You want an attorney who has handled homicide cases, who won’t back down when the going gets tough, someone who has successfully protected the rights of others in similar circumstances. I have represented several defendants for murder charges since 1983 and have an outstanding record for their criminal defense.
