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.

I found my attorney, Mr. Kessous, to be highly professional, knowledgeable, friendly and effective. He was highly responsive to my questions and concerns and easy to work with, and achieved the desired settlement for me in regard to my traffic ticket. If I were in the same situation all over again, I would choose to work with him without hesitation, and expect that if I were to face a similar situation in the foreseeable future, I would contact him. I would also provide his name with the highest recommendation to others in the area for such problems. (I also found his assistant, Gabriela Vargas, to be quite responsive and helpful as well.) Thanks again for all of your help!

I was very impressed with the professionalism and quick turn-around time from all the participants from GGL that assisted me. I would like to especially thank my attorney Jonathan Kessous. His credentials are very notable he is one of four attorneys throughout the entire state of NJ certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Trial Specialist in both Criminal and Municipal Court Law matters. My case was very serious and could have resulted in jail time or suspension of my license. Jonathan was able to resolve my case very favorably. I am extremely thankful for his assistance. I would also like to recognize and thank his Paralegal Jasmin Caba and his Personal Assistant Marianne Crisitello for their assistance in communicating and preparing me for my trial. They are a great team and I would highly recommend them.
