Orlando Murder Defense Attorney

There are fewer charges in the system more destructive than those dealing with murder cases. If you or a loved one have been arrested and are being confronted with serious punishments, it’s in your best interest to seek out an experienced murder attorney like Patrick Grozinger with Grozinger Law, P.A.. Not all cases are cut and dry, and there’s bound to be multiple opportunities for you to avoid jail time, but it takes a lawyer with an aggressive approach. It’s important to know the various charges you may encounter at the time of your arrest.

Contact us or call 407-915-0715 today if you’ve been arrested and see how we can help.

Types of Homicide (Murder)

As we said, there are different types of crimes that can be committed, and depending on the level of offense, there will be an entirely unique approach to your defense. The levels are:

It’s not uncommon that most people would confuse any number of these for another, but there are critical differences that make them specialized. In the case of a first degree murder, the accused is found having intentionally killed another person that they had premeditated to kill. The key aspect of this is intent and planning; there was no incidental act, as they had planned to murder the other person(s) well before the incident. Second degree murder includes crimes wherein the arrested party is found intentionally committing a seriously dangerous act and in the process kills another individual; there does not have to be intent involved, which is a substantial difference between the prior charges. Lastly there is murder in the third degree. This is a case wherein there is a non-violent felony that was committed, and you unintentionally killed another person during the act.

When discussing manslaughter, the lines often get blurred. When someone intentionally kills another without premeditation, or there is culpable negligence involved, the accused is found guilty of manslaughter. In the instance of a DUI manslaughter, a death is caused by the influence of alcohol.

Defenses to Homicide or Murder Cases

Perhaps the most common defense, but one of the most successful, is the claim of self-defense from an attack that could have resulted in your own death. While there’s no guarantee of success, if you can show that you were excusable in your killing of another person, you may be able to have your charges reduced or removed altogether.

Another defense method that has seen success is the instance of legal insanity. While this is harder to prove, if the accused can prove they suffer from a mental illness that prevents them from understanding the consequences, then you can show you may not know the difference between right and wrong.

Lastly, there’s the potential for misidentification. This is a lot more common than people believe, but it’s purely reliant upon eyewitness identification. Fully investigating and evaluating the violent crime can bring you the results that you so desperately want.

At Grozinger Law, P.A., it’s our aim to get the best for you. Just because you’ve been arrested for a crime, it does not mean you will be found guilty. Having an experienced lawyer on your side, especially one with homicide experience can truly mean the difference between your freedom and a life of scrutiny. Contact Patrick Grozinger today and see how he can assist you in keeping your life on track.

Patrick Grozinger is the man to hire if you have any legal questions. He saved my family, and got the case dropped sooner than we thought. I cannot thank him enough for how devoted he is to his professional work. He stayed in contact with me, and made me feel better about our situation. I would give him 10 stars if it was a choice. I will definitely be recommending him to my family and friends that need help if needed.

Words can't describe how grateful I am to have Patrick Grozinger as my Attorney. I researched many different attorneys through their websites and read all their reviews before having a phone conversation with each of them. After carefully vetting and talking to all the different attorneys to represent me for my case, I immediately knew that Patrick would be a great fit for me. He explained to me in detail about the timing and process for my case and potential outcomes. He is very knowledgeable and will explain all the different options you have. I will definitely share his contact info and send him referrals to my family and friends. Thank you for being professional and understanding! He is the one that will help you for sure!

Mr. Grozinger did an amazing job getting the charges dismissed against my husband. He was very responsive and kept us informed every step of the way. His professionalism and knowledge was key to getting the results we wanted. Within one week of hiring Mr. Grozinger, we were finished with the case completely and now we're looking at having the arrest expunged all together. I highly recommend Grozinger Law.

Seeking God’s guidance by searching, contacting, listening and interviewing a good number of highly competent and very experienced attorneys with great tracking records, my wife and I decided to hire Patrick Grozinger. Wow! am so glad we did it!!! Not only was he able to represent my wife from false accusations but also, Patrick was able to have dropped all charges successfully! Due to my financial hardship, I just wish he had been cheaper and that this all never happened. But I can literally see now why he is rated as a top professional providing my wife and I great support and been very straightforward. In fact, Patrick made us feel a lot better during these unbelievable hard times and uncertainty while he proactively worked the case with extreme diligence I would hire him again in a heartbeat! Thank you Patrick & God bless Raul Vargas Jr.

Facing charges can be an extremely stressful time in a person's life, and if you are like me, the stress can feel like the weight of the world on your shoulders. From the the first time I spoke to Patrick, he displayed an extreme amount of reassuring confidence and professionalism when it came to my case. When meeting with Patrick, he thoroughly outlined everything he was going to do for my case from start to finish while constantly reassuring me that he didn't think it would go that far. He filed very comprehensive and thorough paperwork the same day I hired him and within a few weeks was able to get my charges dropped before they were even filed. If you want to sleep at night knowing you have someone working for your best interest throughout your case, do yourself a favor and hire Patrick Grozinger.

I had used Mr Grozinger for my case. He was able to bring my case to a good ending. I found him prompt with returning calls and emails and kept me informed of the changes as they developed. He even followed up during, and even after my case was over to see how I was doing.
