Murder Defense Lawyer in Salt Lake County
Murder charges make for complex cases. Sometimes, they go beyond intentionally and knowingly causing the demise of another person. Some cases I’ve handled at Catherine Cleveland, P.C., involve:
- Intending to cause bodily injury that tragically results in death
- Acting with indifference that causes fatalities
- Committing a separate felony that results in death
- Resisting arrest or assaulting a police officer that results in death
At the initial consultation, I will spend time with you to identify the issues surrounding the criminal charge and assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case. From there, I move forward with thorough investigations and reviews of witness statements. I look at the events leading up to your arrest to see if your rights were violated.
In 2011, Catherine Cleveland began representing a Murray baby sitter accused of shaking a 4-month-old baby to death.
