Los Angeles Murder Defense Attorney

Criminal Defense Lawyers Defending Murder Charges

In the area of violent crimes, the act of murder (California Penal Code Section 187) is perhaps the most significant and serious crime anyone can be accused and charged with. Whether deliberately or by a dreadful mistake, the action of taking another individual's life is prosecuted and punished forcefully, with your life literally being on the line. You need to immediately contact a criminal defense attorney, as a conviction of murder in the State of California can send you to prison for the rest of your life.

The charge of murder falls under different categories such as:

  • Premeditated or first degree murder
  • Second Degree murder, not considered intentional
  • What is called a lawful killing - such as an act by police or yourself in a serious or life-threatening situation

The penalties are severe for a murder conviction, ranging from 15 years to life in prison. You may also not be aware that the State of California is one of the 35 other states that still, depending on the evidence and severity of the murder conviction, hand down the death penalty. With your freedom and possibly your life at stake, it is crucial to have a skilled criminal defense lawyer on your side. The law firm of Cron, Israels & Stark will give you unequaled legal representation in fighting a murder charge that has been leveled against you.

You do not need to discuss anything with the police; in fact it is in your best interest not to do so.
