Murder / Manslaughter

Have you or a loved one been arrested for the death of another?

If so, you have no time to waste. No other conviction results in more serious consequences than being found guilty of a homicide. Without exception, the early hours after someone was killed are crucial to developing the best defense strategies. In addition, once you ask to speak with legal counsel, all interrogation must cease. Prior to that time, any conversations you have with investigators could be used against you in a court of law. Since the outcome of a murder trial can rely on a single fact, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel immediately.

  • First Degree Murder
  • Felony Murder
  • Murder in the Second Degree
  • Manslaughter
  • Justification of Self-Defense
  • DUI Manslaughter

  • Vehicular Homicide
  • Aggravated Manslaughter
  • Criminally Negligent Homicide

Mr.Jones went beyond needed services as a lawyer to help me with my very in depth case. Very helpful throughout the whole 6-7 month process. Not only did he get all my questions answered to the best of his abilities but also really showed compassion for my family & I during the case as well as after. 5 star lawyer, highly recommended. Thank you for all your hard work!

I hired Mr. Jones to represent my son. We had never had to hire a lawyer and I was anxious. Mr. Jones took the time to explain what was happening and it helped lessen my concerns. Once we hired him he started work immediately and was able to get my son's case thrown out. We are very satisfied with his services. Robert H.
★★★★★
I hired Christopher for situation I got myself in. He worked hard to get my case dropped. I definitely would recommend this attorney to anyone needing one. He puts his heart in his work. Roy M.
★★★★★
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Edwards represent me in 2006. While I was charged with a crime, Mr Edwards insisted sternly that he was very confident he could successfully defend the charges against me. This man exudes confidence. It is my opinion that he is clearly one of the best lawyers in the city of Gainesville. You can't go wrong with Mr. Edwards!!! Everette Sr.

We are from Lake City, Florida. As parents, we sought the help of Mr. Edwards in my daughter's behalf. As a young lady, she had acquired multiple felonies with the prospect of 10-15 years in prison facing her. Mr. Edwards heard our case, took it on with confidence, and got her sentence reduced to 10 years probation, and restitution. That was 8 years ago, and my daughter is married, has a son, and is doing great. She hasn't even had a traffic violation. Because Mr. Edwards believed in us and took a chance, we will be forever be in his debt. He is a great lawyer, with a very big heart. Colin
