There are very few things that are more serious than being accused of murder. These allegations alone have enough power to tarnish a person’s reputation permanently. No matter the situation or criminal past of the accused, it is vital to take these accusations seriously by asserting a timely and aggressive defense.

Being accused of murder is a shocking and overwhelming experience. The accused may not know how to react or what to say. It is clear that a suspect does not want to make matters worse by making the wrong move. This is where a criminal defense strategy is key. At our law firm, we know how valuable a strong criminal defense can be. We are dedicated to guiding criminal defendants in the Baton Rouge area to assert the defense they are legally entitled to.

The best defense strategy will be based on the factors involved in each unique case. In some cases, it may be most appropriate to take a plea bargain, as this could help the accused face lesser charges and reduced penalties. However, some defendants find it more appropriate to assert a not guilty defense, as this could help clear their name and give them their life back. At our law firm, we are focused on the needs, goals and best interests of our clients. We take the time to inform our clients of their defense options, potential outcomes and criminal consequences that could result.
