Los Angeles Murder Defense Attorney
Homicide Criminal Defense Lawyers in Los Angeles
Facing a murder charge is overwhelmingly frightening and disorienting, and you need a tough and experienced defense lawyer by your side every step of the way, making sure your rights are protected. While facing a murder charge is a very serious matter, one not to be approached without the representation of a highly skilled defense lawyer, it is important to note that not every homicide is a crime worthy of conviction and incarceration. Accidents do happen. It is the job of your murder defense lawyer to conduct an independent investigation of all the facts and present this set of facts to the prosecutors and judge in your case. In the American criminal justice system, you are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and the criminal defense attorney's job is to make sure that the government plays fair and does not violate your rights.
Murder is defined as the killing of another human being with malice. If a killing does not involve malice, then it is deemed to be manslaughter, voluntary or
involuntary. Under the laws of California, malice can be either express or implied. Express malice means that the person specifically intended to cause the death of the victim. Malice is implied to be present when the victim's death resulted from the accused individual's actions, the natural and probable consequences of that action would lead to death, and the act was deliberate. The prosecutor must be able to prove all these things beyond a reasonable doubt in order to sustain a conviction for murder.
