Defenses to Murder & Homicide Charges

At The Cardoza Law Offices, our Walnut Creek defense lawyers completely understand that just because you have been charged with a violent crime does not mean you are guilty. Even if there is no denial that another person lost their life in the situation, numerous defenses exist that can exonerate you from guilt. For example, evidence that the act of killing was in defense of yourself or other people, or was even an accident, can lead to charges being lessened or even dropped.

In addition to this, law enforcement officials often make mistakes and violate rights during the investigation and arrest process. If they unlawfully used evidence against you, searched and seized property without the proper warrant, or coerced a confession, this can create a strong defense in your favor.

Vigorously Protect Your Freedom

Simply put, murder, manslaughter, and homicide charges are taken very seriously in California, and a conviction could lead to the loss of your freedom for a long period of time, or even for the rest of your life. Our East Bay criminal defense attorneys know what is at stake, and will do everything in our power to collect detailed evidence and put together a strong defense on your behalf. With the legal knowledge, proactive attitudes, and trial experience that other lawyers just don't have, we are ready to vigorously protect your freedom and defend your best interests.
