Scottsdale Murder Defense Attorney


Do you need a strong defense for murder charges?


Murder is one of the most significant crimes an individual can be charged with. If you are convicted of the crime of murder, you are looking at a long prison sentence, possibly without the possibility of parole. Additionally, Arizona is a death penalty state, something that the current governor is strongly in favor of.


If you have been brought up on murder charges you will need a Scottsdale criminal defense lawyer who has a track record defending those who have been accused of murder. With 25 years of experience I am intimately familiar with the Maricopa County Court system, the prosecutors and the judges. I will fight for your rights because I have seen firsthand the effect that murder charges and subsequent convictions have on the accused and their families.


Categories of Homicide/Murder Charges


I have defended clients of who have been charged with all types of homicide related charges, including:


  • First degree murder: This is premeditated killing , including the intentional killing of an unborn child
  • Felony murder: This occurs when someone causes the death of a law enforcement officer, or an death is caused when a felony is being committed, or when fleeing from a felony (regardless of the intent to actually kill)
  • Second degree murder: This is murder that is intentional but not premeditated, such as an unexpected argument, a crime of passion, or a death caused by extreme indifference to human life
  • Manslaughter: This occurs when reckless actions cause the death of another, when a killing is coerced under threat to your life, or the lives of your loved ones, or second degree murder occurs due to provocation
  • Negligent Homicide: This is criminal negligence that causes the death of a person or of an unborn child


These offenses are serious and can affect you and those you love for the rest of your life. The Law Offices of Randolph D. Toscano, PLLC can defend your legal rights and your freedom. When you demand justice, I can help. Call today!
