Robert R. Kurtz, Attorney at Law Murder

Knoxville Federal Murder Defense

Are you facing federal murder charges? With a BV® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, and a 10.0 "Superb" Rating from the nationally recognized attorney-ranking service Avvo and a track record that includes a number of significant and successful case results, Robert Kurtz can identify provide you with one-on-one counsel, independent investigation of your case, and aggressive defense that you need.

In some rare cases, murder can be tried as a federal crime -- such as if the homicide occurs on government land or if the victim is a public official or a government employee. First-degree murder is defined as the "unlawful killing of another human being with malice aforethought."

If you are accused of first-degree murder and tried in federal court, you could face:

  • Life in prison, or
  • Capital punishment

Have You Been Charged with Homicide?

You need to secure strong defense from a federal criminal defense attorney if you are going to be tried for homicide at the federal level. You will be facing a tougher prosecution than you would in a state court, made up of well-funded and prepared prosecutors and investigators.

The prosecution will be burdened to prove that you committed the murder, acting with malicious aforethought, and had no lawful excuse for the act such as acting in defense. Attorney Robert R. Kurtz can go over all pertinent aspects of your charges, arrest, and the investigation in order to determine how to undermine the prosecution's case.
