In cases where the evidence is inconclusive as to the existence of self defense, this may be used to negotiate a very favorable plea agreement. David A. Hill has successfully raised the defense of self defense on behalf of numerous clients, that produced very positive outcomes, including acquittals at trial.
Ballistic experts can help determine the type of bullet, trajectory of a bullet and the type of firearm that was used to commit an alleged crime. Mr. Hill is an avid sportsman who reloads his own ammunition. This experience is invaluable in identifying mistakes in the government's "gunshot" evidence, and determining what in fact occurred based upon the ballistics evidence. Our firm has successfully enlisted the service of ballistic experts in numerous cases to disprove the validity of the prosecution's theory of a case, and actually proven from the physical evidence that the defendant was not guilty of the firearms charge.
