There are several categories of murder charges:

  • first degree murder
  • second degree murder
  • felony murder
  • manslaughter
  • vehicular manslaughter

The potential sentence ranges from 10 years to life.

I have tried many murder trials throughout the state of Maryland, in various counties. In fact, in some of the smaller counties in Maryland I have tried more murder cases that the prosecutors. That experience comes in handy when representing clients. It is important to hire an attorney with extensive experience in criminal trial work.
