Asserting a strong defense throughout a murder case

Whether it is through social media, public awareness or through their own knowledge, individuals in Louisiana and elsewhere are well aware how serious a murder charge is. As a previous post highlighted, in the state of Louisiana, a person facing a murder charge could face serious penalties, such as capital punishment. Because so much is at stake, these charges should not be taken lightly. There is an opportunity to assert a strong criminal defense, helping a defendant make a huge difference in their case.

There is no doubt that being accused of and arrested for a homicide charge is overwhelming. Many things are likely going through the mind of the accused; however, the most important topic they can think about at this time is how they are going to make this all go away.

By taking a realist and rational approach, defendants may be able to reduce or dismiss the charges against them; however, at Damico & Stockstill, Attorneys at Law, our law firm likes to think out of the box. We consider all factors and details of the case, leaving no corner unchecked. Therefore, we are able to develop a strong and creative defense strategy that will work best to meet the best interests of our clients.

We want your story to be heard in court, and in conjunction with effective defense strategies, our goal is to help our clients obtain reduced charges or even receive an acquittal. The consequences associated with a murder charge could essential take away the life of the accused if he or she is convicted. Thus, our skilled attorneys consider the ability to reduce the charges to negligent homicide or manslaughter. This helps take away the threat of the death penalty or spending life in prison.
