Los Angeles Attempted Murder Defense Lawyer

What is attempted murder?

Under California Penal Code section 664/187, the crime of attempted murder involves intentionally and deliberately acting to commit the murder of another person. You must have actually have taken actions to commit murder. The crime of murder, and not just injuring someone, must have been planned, and have been done with the intention to kill that individual. If it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the attempted murder was deliberate and premeditated, the person will get life in prison with the possibility of parole. Attempted murder cases can be very complex. It is vital that you consult with an attorney who has the knowledge and experience with these types of cases. A Los Angeles criminal defense attorney will advise you all of the legal options in your case. We will help you determine if accepting a plea bargain is in your best interests, and, if the facts warrant it, work to get your case dismissed or receive a lighter sentence. We will do what is needed to help protect your constitutional rights.

Attempted Murder: The Prosecution's Burden of Proof

An attempted murder case may be complex. They may be difficult to prove, as the prosecution must show that the crime was planned in advance, and that the defendant intended to murder the person and not just cause severe injury. Your attorney must have a thorough understanding of all of the nuances of such a charge and anticipate the questions that the prosecutor might ask: Was a firearm used? If so, how many shots were fired? Where was the person injured - was it on the top half of the body where many vital organs are located? Was the crime gang related? Were the police involved? The law firm of Tyler & Wilson, LLP understands what the prosecutor's burden is, and will prepare a strong defense that will make it harder for the prosecutor to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.
