 Defending Against Murder Charges in California

Our goal is to minimize your exposure to potential punishment. In some cases, that means working with the prosecution to reduce the severity of the charges you face. In other cases, it’s a question of showing the jury that the government failed to prove the case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. No matter what charges you face, you can count on us to find and present the most effective defense available under the facts.

We represent people who face such serious criminal charges as:

  • Capital murder or felony murder
  • Weapons offenses
  • Violent juvenile crimes
  • Armed robbery
  • Terroristic threats
  • Domestic violence
  • Aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon, or assault with serious bodily harm
  • Homicide in any degree, including vehicular homicide or involuntary manslaughter

One hallmark of our practice is our willingness and ability to present effective affirmative defenses to all charges. In other words, we work hard to prove any circumstances that may help limit your responsibility under the law including self-defense, provocation, diminished mental capacity, and accident and duress.

Our Salinas homicide lawyer's record of success shows that we have used such defenses to achieve results such as an involuntary manslaughter verdict on a capital murder charge or a not-guilty verdict despite a confession to homicide.
