Challenging a Homicide Case
During the initial phase, we thoroughly examine all elements of the district attorney’s case. Our San Bernardino and Riverside law firm employs private investigators, forensics specialists, and other experts to find and exploit any holes in the prosecution’s case. We scrutinize DNA evidence and other physical evidence, the reliability of alleged witnesses to the crime, police errors or violations of rights, the assignment of motive and intent, and any other basis for fighting the charges.
Straightforward Answers on What to Expect in Your Homicide Case
At the preliminary hearing on murder charges, the judge will determine if there is sufficient cause to proceed to trial. If a trial is ordered, one of the attorneys at our firm will sit down with the client for a frank discussion of the possible outcomes.
- When the prosecution’s case is likely to result in conviction, we have a solid record in negotiating plea bargains with district attorneys that are most favorable to our clients.
- If you decide to retain our services at trial, we use every resource and strategy to create a reasonable doubt in the minds of jury members.
