Aggressive Criminal Defense
Little Rock murder defense attorney John Wesley Hall has handled serious crimes and homicide cases for nearly 55 years. In every serious crime case we use our in-depth knowledge of the law and work hard to find ways to minimize the damage or go to trial seeking an acquittal or a lesser offense. If it was in self-defense, it is a killing, not a murder, and there is a difference.
Arkansas Homicide Attorneys
In homicide cases we investigate the case to determine the client's innocence or justification for the killing. We collect evidence to prove our client's alibi or facts surrounding the situation that provide a reason for the crime, thereby reducing charges. Many homicide cases involve an explanation such as self defense. We also investigate the forensics aspect of the case such as how the weapon was used, the location of the crime, and other evidence. When representing and defending clients charged with homicide, we prepare ourselves to anticipate the prosecutor's actions.
The penalties for facing a homicide charge in Arkansas state or federal court can include a lifetime jail sentence or a death penalty sentence. This is why it is necessary to immediately hire experienced legal representation to explain and defend your case. Our firm has experience representing clients in murder and capital cases and other more complex homicide cases such as attempted murder and vehicular homicide. Hall has even handled a complicate war crimes trial involving allegations of murder in violation of the Geneva Convention.
We work hard to explain our client's case as best as possible to the jury. We have been successful in overturning charges and minimizing sentences.
