Fighting Serious Murder And Manslaughter Charges
A conviction for second-degree murder means a life sentence, and in Louisiana, life means life. Since 1991, we have successfully obtained real results – not guilty verdicts, reduced charges, dropped cases or death penalty taken off the table – for every client we have defended against a charge of murder.
We provide experienced and aggressive defense representation in a full range of the most serious violent crimes cases, including:
- Second-degree murder (i.e., the crime of passion)
- First-degree murder (i.e., premeditated murder)
- Drug overdose death charged as murder
- Vehicular negligent homicide and vehicular manslaughter charges in a fatal drunk driving accident
Once you hire a defense attorney from our firm, we will launch an immediate investigation with the goal of finding the holes in the prosecution’s case. We will subpoena any documentation from the hospital or crime lab and interview the important witnesses. We will work hard to find the vital evidence that’s not listed in the prosecution’s documents.
Remember that in murder and manslaughter cases, what may not seem important to you may be extremely important to the law. Only a knowledgeable criminal law lawyer with experience in these cases can give you the guidance and protection you need.
