Homicide charges are, of course, among the most serious that an individual can face.  Comprised of 1st and 2nd degree murder and manslaughter, certain homicide charges carry the potential sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. Others mandate or allow sentences of life in prison with the possibility of parole.  Given the magnitude of those potential sanctions, the services of an experienced homicide attorney are imperitive. Attorney Craig V. Montecalvo has personally, and in combination with collegues, handled over 15 homicide cases in Rhode Island courtrooms and has established a well documented record of success. Issues presented during those cases include self-defense, battered women’s syndrome, alibi, and conspiracy. As a result of his extensive experience handling all aspects of homicide cases, Attorney Montecalvo is uniquely well suited to represent clients charged with these most serious offenses.
