Cases involving the loss of human life are extremely serious. They are handled differently, and carry the potential for severe sentences, including life in prison. First-degree murder carries the potential for the death penalty.
Arizona law has four levels of homicide: first degree murder, second degree murder, manslaughter, and negligent homicide. Each level carries its own potential range of punishment and presents its own unique considerations for defending the case. The attorneys at the Law Office of Hernandez & Hamilton, PC, have extensive experience in representing clients in these types of cases. We conduct our own, independent defense investigation of the facts with our own private investigators and locate weaknesses in the case.
