Murder Defense


If you are facing charges for murder or any other crime that resulted in the death of another person, it is critical that you have strong representation from an Atlanta murder defense attorney. Our criminal defense lawyers understand the specialized issues involved in the preparation and defense of a homicide charge and have the courtroom experience and skill to stand up against the State.

For more than 30 years the law firm of Garland, Samuel & Loeb, has provided aggressive defense representation to clients throughout the state. Our firm has successfully handled a number of high-profile murder cases, including the defense of future Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis, and the defense of Jim Williams whose case was the subject of the book “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.”

Fighting for Your Rights

With every case we take, we closely scrutinize every piece of evidence the prosecution intends to use against you. Armed with a thorough understanding of the case our attorneys drive the case toward the best possible outcome, whether that is convincing the State to dismiss or reduced the charges against you or crafting a successful defense at trial. When the State seeks the death penalty and your life is on the line, our defense team at Garland, Samuel & Loeb has the skill and courage to stand between you and the State. We will leave no stone unturned to defend and protect your life.

We are prepared to defend you against all types of murder charges, including:

  • Felony murder

  • Malice murder

  • Voluntary manslaughter

  • Involuntary manslaughter

  • Vehicular homicide

Depending on the circumstances of your case, several defenses may be available including offering proof that someone else committed the crime, or the killing was done in self defense, or that the murder was unintentional, or that the State’s evidence is insufficient to convict, or in the case of felony murder that the death was not caused by the commission of another crime. Additionally, there may be mitigating circumstances such that the facts only support a lesser charge. Our attorneys have the skill to bring these defenses to life in the courtroom whether it is through withering cross examination of a Government witness or a compelling closing argument demonstrating the deficiencies in the State’s proof.
