Charged With Attempted First-Degree Murder?

Our Results Speak For Themselves. We Know How To Win Cases.

If you have been charged with attempted first-degree murder, the prosecution must prove that you took actions and had the intent to kill a specific individual.

At Erickson & Oppenheimer, LTD, we force the prosecution to prove every aspect of its case beyond a reasonable doubt. We are not looking to get our clients a quick plea bargain. Instead, we will aggressively pursue defense strategies, including as appropriate: self-defense, lack of intent, intoxication and insanity. We will also aggressively contest all evidence against you and protect your constitutional rights from the investigation through trial. If evidence against you was obtained in violation of the law, we will work diligently to have that evidence thrown out of court.
