Visalia Violent Crimes Lawyer

Tulare Murder Defense Attorney

If you have been charged with the commission of a violent crime, from assault and battery to homicide, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your constitutional rights. The consequences of a conviction in California can be serious — you could even face the death penalty. You want an attorney who understands the law and process, one who has successfully defended others in high-stakes, high-profile criminal matters.

At the Law Office of Eric T. Hamilton , I bring more than 10 years of criminal defense experience to people in Kings County and Tulare County. I have extensive trial experience and am comfortable aggressively protecting your rights before a judge and jury. I always take a serious approach on behalf of my clients, vigorously advocating for you in all proceedings. Because of my reputation, many of my new cases come to me as referrals from clients or other lawyers.

My Violent Crimes Defense Practice

I provide aggressive defense to anyone charged with a violent crime, handling prosecutions for murder, attempted murder, assault and battery, and gang crimes. I have the experience, knowledge and skill to successfully defend people in death penalty cases, as well as violent crimes involving the use of a deadly weapon.

When you hire me to defend you on a violent crime charge, I will conduct a thorough and exhaustive investigation of the facts and circumstances of your case. I will verify that police had probable cause for any search, seizure or arrest, and that all evidence was legally obtained. If the evidence against you is circumstantial, I will work hard to establish and present other plausible explanations, always working to establish reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors. I understand the unreliability of eyewitness testimony, and will use my skill and experience to impeach or discredit such testimony, if possible.

Because of my experience, I know how to work with expert witness and employ sophisticated testing in your defense, including DNA evidence or gunshot residue testing. I have also effectively used other forensic experts, including identification and coerced confession experts.
