Murder 2nd Story
Los Angeles Murder Defense Attorney
MURDER CHARGES REQUIRE THE TOP MOST SEASONED CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY
IF I HAVE A LOVED ONE CHARGED WITH HOMICIDE / MURDER WHAT TYPE OF ATTORNEY DO WE NEED?
In my experience there are few attorneys in Los Angeles that are equipped to deal with these type of cases. When all of the marbles are on the line there is no substitute for an attorney that is battle tested and has successfully tried many homicide trials in the L.A. courthouses. The problem is that many attorneys will not touch these type of cases because of the serious stakes that are typically on the line.
It is key that you meet with the attorney you are considering hiring and make sure that they will be the one handling your case. Beware of law firms that are using other attorneys to actually litigate a particular case versus the attorney that is advertised. You want an attorney that can tell you, after they have heard what the client is up against, what a potential road to victory might be for the charged person. Let them explain to you what has to be proven by the prosecutor in order to obtain a conviction in the case.
Also, discussing other cases that they have litigated, similar to the case you are considering hiring them for, is a good idea as well. What you are really trying to do is get a feel for the type of person and attorney they are. They will be the one arguing to make sure that your loved one is not sent to prison for the rest of their life…you better make sure you feel comfortable with them!
