Penal Code 187 Murder Defense in Los Angeles

If you are charged with Penal Code 187 murder, you will need a defense lawyer familiar with the local prosecutors and judges. Having practiced in the Valley for almost 30 years, he knows the judges.  He knows the prosecutors.

He knows the jury pool, and these are some of the crucial things that you must understand if you're defending somebody who is charged with murder. I think what it boils down to is that you have got to have been in the position of defending somebody for their life because that's what a murder case is all about.

If the person gets convicted, they're typically spending the rest of their life in prison.  I have been in that position many times as a criminal defense attorney since the early 1990s. The second case I did was a murder case, and it was a not guilty on the murder charge.  I'm going to fight for my clients.  I will do everything it takes to win the case.

First and foremost, we don't take the case to trial unless we have a chance to win.  Secondly, I've got to talk to the client.  If he did not commit the crime, there is no way we're going to do anything but fight the case.

Lawyer Who Knows How to Cross-Examine Witnesses

Cross-Examination of Witnesses in Penal Code 187 Murder Cases

In PC 187 murder cases, you need a criminal defense lawyer with the ability to cross-examine witnesses. The bottom line is, when everything is on the line when your loved one's life is on the line, you must have an attorney that can fight, that can win.
