Murder And Manslaughter
Protecting Your Constitutional Rights
A first or second degree murder charge or manslaughter charge demands aggressive criminal defense. Fortunately, Alaska does not carry a death penalty, but that is small comfort to someone sentenced to life in prison.
At the Law Offices of Robert Herz, P.C., we have experience defending individuals who are facing murder charges. From representing John Phillips in the murder case of Trooper Bruce Heck, to the notorious Billy Smith accused of chopping up two bodies and dumping them into Cook Inlet, to successfully defending Harold Roberts in the shooting death of a man charging him with an axe at Alexander Creek, attorney Robert M. Herz has defended many homicide cases.
In addition to achieving acquittals to homicide charges in state court, our attorney Robert M. Herz has earned the respect of prosecutors and judges alike. The Chief Justice of the Alaska Supreme Court appointed him to the Criminal Rules Committee for the state of Alaska. Criminal defense referrals to our law office are a commonplace occurrence.

Success in State Court
A murder and manslaughter case usually will be tried in state court and each case will be different depending on the charge and the unique facts of each case. Several things are certain: these cases are difficult and complex, always involve a lot of forensic science and rely on the testimony of experts. Blood spatter, Crime Scene Reconstruction, Hairs and Fibers, and DNA evidence are just some of the areas of forensic science a criminal defense attorney needs to know to properly defend a murder case.
Over the years and with his science background Attorney Robert M. Herz has developed in-depth knowledge in various areas of forensic science. His law firm has access to nationally renowned experts in all areas of forensic science and Attorney Robert M. Herz has the skills to successfully cross-examine any expert witness.
