Vigorous, Effective Homicide Representation

Homicide cases, for obvious reasons, carry the most severe punishments, including the permanent loss of liberty and, in rare cases, capital punishment. A homicide defense is a major undertaking, often involving dozens of witnesses, including experts, and possibly thousands of pages of documents. Evidence needs to be meticulously scrutinized to ensure a favorable outcome.

At Olexa & Casari, high-stakes criminal defense is a common mode of operation. Attorney Olexa has handled cases in which the difference between getting a great result and a poor result depended on finding a small fact or piece of evidence buried inside volumes of discovery. On a similar note, the selection of a single juror can make the difference between your freedom and spending life behind bars. Attorney Olexa works closely with his private investigator to ensure that important evidence is preserved and obtained, the right people are interviewed before they become unavailable or their memories fade, and appropriate expert witnesses are subpoenaed to contribute to clients’ defense.

Attorney Olexa is experienced in influencing jury selection to ensure that the 12 people who decide your fate and your freedom will listen carefully to your defenses and offer you a fair chance at an acquittal.

Deciding who represents you or your loved one on a homicide case is likely the most important decision you will make in your life. Reach out to Olexa & Casari today to discuss your criminal charges and your defense needs. Initial consultations are free.
