Murder Put More than 40 Years of Combined Experience to Work for You

Murder Defense Lawyer in Long Beach

I've Been Accused of Murder — Now What?

Murder falls under the umbrella of homicide, which is the unlawful killing of another person. Murder differs from manslaughter in that murder carries intent, often termed "malice aforethought." Due to this, the penalties for murder charges are much more serious. You could be forced to spend the rest of your life behind bars, which is why you cannot delay in obtaining a strong defense.

At the Law Office of Peacock & Le Beau, we know how to utilize effective legal strategies to prevent our clients from facing unfair and unnecessarily harsh penalties. Our attorneys have been practicing law together for more than 25 years, equipping them to handle even the toughest murder cases.

Creating a Strategic Defense Against Your Charges

When you choose the Law Office of Peacock & Le Beau to represent you, we do everything we can to have your murder charges dropped or reduced. This may mean gathering sufficient evidence to clear your name or demonstrating that you had no intent to commit murder, securing a lesser charge of manslaughter. It is important to keep in mind that you are facing serious penalties, which is why it is so crucial for you to obtain immediate legal counsel for your case.

A murder charge carries the following penalties:

  • Between 25 years to life in prison
  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Possible strike on your record under the California Three Strike Law
  • Possible community service and counseling

If you were responsible for a death but due only to negligence, we could argue to have your charges downgraded to involuntary manslaughter, carrying a much lighter sentence. Whatever the case, you can rely on our team for relentless, aggressive defense tactics.
