Self Defense

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

In the state of Florida, a murder that occurred while you were defending yourself may be considered lawful and justified. In fact, if you are being accused of murder after defending yourself or your family from an attacker, robber, or otherwise violent criminal, it is entirely possibly that your charges can be dropped entirely. In order to obtain a ruling that a death occurred in self defense, you will need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.
