Murder

New York City Murder Defense Attorney

Representing Clients in Yonkers, White Plains, & New Rochelle

If you have been charged with murder, you are facing one of the most severely punished crimes that you can possibly commit. Any type of murder is treated as the most monstrous atrocities that a person can inflict upon another. Because of this, you can expect that the prosecutors might try to ensure that you get the maximum penalty for your alleged crimes – no matter what your circumstances are.

The criminal defense lawyers at the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser have over 60 years combined legal experience handling all types of violent crime defense throughout New York. If you have been charged with murder, you could face some very serious punishments depending upon the severity of the circumstances involved. The different types of murder that you could be charged for include the following:

  • Murder in the second degree – You can face this charge if you caused the death of another person intentionally but you were under the influence of “extreme emotional disturbance.” Can be charged as a class A-I felony.
  • Aggravated murder – You can face this charge if you, under extreme emotional disturbance, intentionally caused the death of another person who was an on-duty police officer, peace officer or state correctional institution employee. Can be charged as a class A-I felony.
  • Murder in the first degree – You can face this charge if you cause the death of another person intentionally. Can be charged as a class A-I felony.

If you are facing any of the above murder charges, you could spend anywhere from a minimum of 15 years in jail to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. An A-I felony is charged differently depending upon the severity of the crime. A competent lawyer at the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser can meet with you to determine the best possible course of action in your particular case. Call our office today to learn more.
