Ron Cordova represents clients charged with the most serious felonies of murder and manslaughter. There are several different offenses that fall under the umbrella of criminal homicide, from involuntary manslaughter to first degree murder. An effective legal defense involves more than just an examination of the facts on the surface. The primary factor in determining guilt is whether there was intent to commit the act.
Prosecutors often go for the jugular in homicide cases. It is not unusual to charge first degree murder when a lesser charge of manslaughter would be more appropriate. The potential penalties for the different offenses vary radically.
“I work overtime to protect your constitutional rights and make sure the prosecutor isn’t stacking up charges. Facing a serious criminal charge, you need to trust your lawyer like you have never trusted anyone in your life. I have a 40-plus year record of successful criminal defense that you can put your faith in.” Ron Cordova
