Murder Charges

Relentless Defense for Clients Facing Murder Charges

There are no charges more serious than murder charges – period. A conviction will always land you in prison, sometimes for decades. There will be fines and court fees and a total loss of some of your rights as a citizen. And if that weren’t enough, the families of those convicted of murder charges face the unending social stigma of being related to a murderer.

At Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq, we always fight for an outright acquittal of your murder charges. When an acquittal is not possible, we build a defense for lesser charges. We handle all levels of charges including:

  • 1st, 2nd and felony murder charges
  • Aggravated and non-aggravated manslaughter charges
  • Attempted murder
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Aggravated assault
  • Felony assault
  • Aiding a suicide

When you are charged with the most serious crime, you need the most serious attorneys. Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq have successfully taken on murder charges in New Jersey, and we put our considerable skills, experience and resources behind our clients. Attorney Jonathan A. Kessous, Esq. is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney; together with Attorney Arlindo B. Araujo, Esq, whose experiences include the successful defense of a client in an attempted murder case, they lead our criminal defense group at Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq. Our team knows how to win a murder case, and we stop at nothing to protect our clients’ rights and futures.

How New Jersey Handles a Murder Case

The killing of one person by another is considered homicide. A person charged with murder is being charged with the criminal homicide of another person. The difference is very, very important. If a man hits a woman with a car by accident and the woman dies, it is homicide; if a man purposely runs down a woman with a car in order to kill her, it is murder.

A murder case often hinges on whether or not intent can be proved. This means that if you are in a bar fight and you knock a man down, he hits his head and then dies at the hospital, you may face aggravated assault charges or manslaughter charges instead of murder. A felony assault conviction is serious, but it is a far better alternative to a murder conviction. Our lawyers offer you clear counsel about your options so that together we can make the best decision about moving forward. The choice will always ultimately be yours, but we make sure you understand all of the facts, the charges leveled against you, the evidence that the prosecutor claims to have, and what could happen during a trial.

When you’re facing the literal fight for your life, you want a partner who will aggressively defend you. Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq offers superior skills to clients involved in a murder case, and takes on appeals as well.
