Experienced San Jose Defense Attorney For Suspects In Murder Cases

Murder is one of those crimes that carries a compelling emotional factor along with just the word describing it. Police, prosecutors, judges and juries often have social justice motives behind cases brought against suspects in murder and homicide cases. Politically speaking, the public often demands a conviction when charges of murder become known.

An Experienced, Dedicated Defense Lawyer Is An Essential Ally

Protecting the constitutional rights of the accused is of utmost importance in the face of violent crime charges. If you or a loved one has been arrested or charged on suspicion of murder, you need an experienced defense attorney on your side as soon as possible. Adrienne Dell in San Jose has successfully handled the defense of people facing the death penalty because of murder charges. She is prepared to fight for your rights at every stage of your criminal case despite accusations of murder. Remember that the prosecutor must prove your intent to kill in order to convict you of murder. If you were involved in an incident that resulted in someone’s death, it is critical for you to work closely with a defender determined to protect your reputation, your record and your freedom. A detailed investigation may uncover one of the following as a strong factor in your defense:

  • The death was an accident.
  • You acted in self-defense.
  • You lashed out in anger without intending to kill.
  • A domestic violence situation got out of control due to passions.
  • Your actions were a result of addiction, mental illness or unmanaged anger.

As in any criminal matter, defense lawyer Adrienne Dell will seek the best outcome at every stage of your murder case. The highest goal is a case dismissal, and that is most achievable if she comes on your case as soon as possible. Even if a first- or second-degree murder conviction seems likely, she may help you obtain a better outcome through exploration of sentencing alternatives that a prosecutor or judge will accept.

A Prompt Defense Is The Most Promising

Do not attempt to predict the outcome of your murder trial before there even is a trial. Rather, explore the most effective defense strategies your violent crime case has to offer.
