Murder Defense Lawyer
Compassionate & Aggressive Jasper Criminal Attorney
One of the scariest and most serious crimes that you can be accused of or arrested for is murder. When it comes to violent crimes like murder, law enforcement tend to put the pressure on and try to get you to answer questions or talk about the charges. Please keep in mind that you are not under any obligation to do so and that you should ask to speak with a Jasper criminal defense lawyer. At Allen Law LLC, we have years of experience under our belt and have been recognized for our ability to provide exceptional legal defense.
The types of murder charges we defend include:
- Murder: First-degree and second-degree murder charges both involve intentionally or recklessly killing another person, while first-degree includes premeditation or murder while committing another felony. The punishment for murder can involve a punishment from 10 years to life in prison.
- Attempted murder: A charge of attempted murder involves a violent action against another person with the intention to kill, though unsuccessful. Although attempted murder may seem less serious, it is still considered a Class A felony and can be punishable by 10 years to life in prison.
- Capital murder: A first-degree murder charge which is committed under special circumstances is referred to as capital murder. The special circumstances could include killing a law enforcement officer, elderly person, or child. In Alabama, this crime is typically punished by life without parole or the death penalty.
