Vancouver Murder Defence Lawyer

A conviction for a homicide offence results in severe consequences that can limit your livelihood and your future opportunities. For this reason, it is incredibly important to find the strongest criminal defence possible.

I am Michael R. Shapray, Surrey and Vancouver criminal defence lawyer. I have the experience and skill you need to prepare a full defence in your favour when you are facing charges for:

  • First (1st) degree murder
  • Second (2nd) degree murder
  • Criminal negligence causing death
  • Involuntary manslaughter, including vehicular manslaughter

Preparation is the key to success in all areas of criminal defence but especially in manslaughter and murder charges. I fully prepare each case to a very high standard and am willing to take your case to trial. Not every lawyer will do so.

I am proud of the results I have achieved for my clients, including:
R. v. P.L. Attempted murder charges against wife resolved with NOT GUILTY finding after defence of automatism raised through comprehensive expert evidence and legal submissions.

As your first consultation with me is free, you have nothing to lose by discussing your situation with me. I may be able to identify defences and options that you are currently unaware of or unsure of whether they apply in your situation. I will give you my full attention and provide you with a comprehensive assessment of the consequences of each of your options.
