Tenacious Homicide Defense from the Most Elite Defense Attorneys

Homicide charges have the potential to result in the most severe criminal penalties, including life in prison without parole. It is not hyperbole to say that a homicide conviction will end your life as you know it, leaving your family and friends with a hole they can never fill.

Wisconsin Elite Defense Group provides unparalleled depth and experience in homicide and other violent felony cases. They offer only a select book of clients access to a collaboration of three attorneys and their vast network of resources, including the best investigators, experts, and trial techniques available in this critical area of criminal defense.

The Elite Defense Trial Record for Acquittals is Unmatched

When it comes to homicide defense, Elite Defense Group has the most recognized and awarded history of acquittals in the State of Wisconsin. Attorney Aaron Nelson holds the record for “Hanson Awards”, an award given by the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys for homicide acquittals. Attorney Nelson holds an absolutely unmatched eight. No other attorney in the State of Wisconsin comes close to Attorney Nelson’s homicide acquittal record. The Hanson Award is only given to attorneys that achieve an acquittal in a homicide case — arguably the most difficult “not guilty” an attorney can secure. Mike and Jessa add another 4 of those awards for a total of 12 Hanson awards which is more than two times as many as any other law firm in the state. Lawyers at Elite have proven time and time again that they can and will perform under pressure.

Elite Defense has won acquittals on and works regularly with clients accused of:

  • First-degree intentional homicide
  • Reckless homicide
  • Felony murder
  • Homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle
  • Homicide by use of a firearm
  • Self-Defense
