That is why we have been annually selected as a Pre-Eminent Top 5% U.S. Law Firm by Martindale-Hubbell, a nationally-recognized law firm review service. In fact, Attorney Dmitry Gorin is a former Homicide Prosecutor with the DA's Office and understands how these charges are investigated and proved in court – and knows where the problems often lie in the government's case.

Definition of Attempted Murder under California Law

As defined in California Penal Code Section 664/187, the crime Attempted Murder involves intentionally and deliberately acting to commit murder of another individual. Attempted murder requires proactively taking steps towards committing the act of murder.

As complex as attempted murder defense may be, our defense lawyers know firsthand that prosecutors also face difficulties. The prosecution must show that the accused both intended, and attempted to commit the crime. Another factor considered in an attempted murder case involves the location on the body the attack takes place. For example, intentional injuries to the upper half of the body, for example, may constitute attempted murder because vital organs are contained there. Attacks to the lower body, however, are usually not considered attempted murder. Also, if firearm is use and one shot is discharged, as opposed to numerous, the defense lawyer has a compelling argument the crime is an Assault, rather than an intentional act to kill qualifying for attempted murder charges.
