If You’ve Been Charged With Homicide, Your Future Is On The Line

Murder and manslaughter are among the most serious crimes. When facing these charges, you need a skilled, seasoned defense lawyer on your side.

At Cloutier, Conley & Duffett PA, our criminal defense team is led by Neale Duffett and Jerry Conley. They know how prosecutors think and the steps they take when building their cases. They also know what it takes to undermine their legal theories and create doubt in judges and juries. They will fight for you.

There’s More To The Story Than The Police Report

When defending clients against homicide charges, our lawyers leave no stone unturned. We diligently investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Was the killing done in self-defense? Was it an accident? Did police follow proper procedures during the investigation and arrest? Was the evidence tampered with in any way? Once we know the facts, we can begin building your defense.

Alleviating The Fear

We will review your options with you, and the results you can expect to achieve. Then, we will do everything in our power to defeat your charges and get the best results possible.
