Have You Been Accused Of Being A Violent Offender?
At the Law Office of Eric T. Hamilton, I bring more than 20 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.
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.
Your Case Will Be Thoroughly Investigated
When you allow me to defend you on a weapons or other form of violent crime charge, I thoroughly review the facts and conduct an exhaustive investigation of the circumstances of your case. I will analyze whether 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.
