Arguably the most serious accusation you can face in California, a murder charge can change your life forever. Murder is the unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought. If you are convicted of murder, you may be imprisoned for 25 years to life(without the possibility of parole). Because the death penalty has not been abolished in California, you can be sentenced to death.

Our extensive experience and knowledge give us the tools we need to successfully challenge murder charges.

There is a host of issues we can evaluate based on our analysis of the police reports, witness statements and other evidence both on file and during our investigation. Based on our findings, we may be able to construct powerful defenses in the pursuit of acquittal at trial or even pretrial dismissal of the charges.

There may also be circumstances in mitigation that permit reduction of charges from first degree murder or second degree murder to voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, or criminally negligent homicide.
