Hedding Law Firm

Attempted Murder Lawyer in Los Angeles

If a person has acted deliberately and intentionally with extreme disregard for human life attempting to inflict fatal bodily injury on another person, then that person may be charged with attempted murder.

Although attempted murder charges are less severe than murder charges, the penalties are still severe and a conviction may result in 60 and up to 108 months in prison.

Specific Intent Crime

Attempt is a specific intent crime and according to California Penal Code section 664/187, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant acted intentionally and deliberately.

The prosecution must not only prove that there was a specific intent but also that there was a substantial step taken towards the commission of the attempted crime.

As criminal defense lawyers, we investigate the charges and do everything we can to refute and contest all the evidence presented against our client. Lack of intent or self defense are the most common defense to attempted murder.

It is our duty to our clients to do whatever we can in an aggressive manner to get our clients the best possible results.

With our 75 years of combined experience and our outstanding legal skill and strategy, we can guarantee our competence, our persistence, and our dedication. Our law firm understand the serious consequences of an attempted murder conviction and we genuinely want to help our clients.

If you are facing a charge of attempted murder, contact our criminal defense lawyers in Los Angeles so we can answer all your legal questions and explain how we can aggressively defend you in court.
