Any case in which a person is killed is called a homicide. Homicides can broken down into various categories including First Degree Murder, Second Degree Murder, Felony Murder, Voluntary Manslaughter, Involuntary Manslaughter and more. These are treated as very serious crimes and can result in a sentence of life in prison or even the death penalty. Homicide law is complex, and any person facing homicide charges needs an attorney. Derek Ewin has experience handling homicide cases as both a Deputy District Attorney and a defense attorney. As a prosecutor in the Contra Costa DA’s Office, Derek Ewin was assigned to the Gang Homicide unit. There he prosecuted some of the most violent homicide cases in the county, including stabbings, drive by shootings, turf wars, drug killings, carjackings and more. If you are being investigated for a homicide, you need an attorney with the experience and understanding possessed by Derek Ewin. Do not wait to call, as your actions can have a dramatic impact on the outcome of your case.
