Aggressive, Skillful and Experienced Defense

Taking an aggressive approach against a murder charge

While some Iowa crimes are clearly minor than others, none are more serious than murder charges. When faced with this violent crime, defendants might be overwhelmed. He or she may not be fully aware of their options and how important it is to take timely action because his or her emotions are running high. Even when it feels like the evidence is plentiful, this does not mean conviction is inevitable.

Challenging evidence is a strategic way to poke holes in the prosecution's case. If evidence was unlawfully seized, asserting one's constitutional rights might be the best step. At J. Dean Keegan and Thomas Farnsworth, Attorneys at Law, our skilled attorneys have years of experience representing defendants facing a wide variety of violent crimes.

Take, for example, a fatal car accident. This incident might leave a motorist faced with vehicular manslaughter. The evidence collected during investigations may seem lawful, as it is a search subject to arrest.

However, this does not mean everything is for the taking. Our law firm understands the laws and the rights of our clients. Thus, we carefully dissect the details of the matter, ensuring no rights have been infringed.

If we suspect that evidence was collected during an unlawful search and seizure, we will use this information to develop a strong defense. This means suppressing evidence and using our own evidence to prove certain elements of the crime do not exist. This essentially could help the accused get their case dismissed or reduce the charges against them. To learn more, check out our law firm's violent crimes website.
