Murder Defense in Massachusetts

Zealous Advocacy & Criminal Defense in Boston

Murder refers to the act of homicide in which an individual takes the life of another human being. At the Law Offices of Dianna L. Abdala, we are a skilled criminal defense law firm that is dedicated to preserving the rights of our clients by providing the type of defense that they need most of all: aggressive and resolute.

According to Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 265 Section 1, murder is defined as an act that is committed with deliberately premeditated malice or with extreme atrocity or cruelty. Murder is the most serious felony crime and is punishable to the fullest extent of the law. Individuals found guilty of murder in the first degree may face the following:

  • Life in prison if convicted at the state level
  • Death sentence if convicted at the federal level

At times like this, you need strong legal representation. The pressure of the legal system can feel so oppressive that you may not know where to turn, who to trust, or what to do. If you trust in a Boston criminal defense attorney from our firm to represent you in court, you can have peace of mind knowing that your criminal allegations are being handled in an effective manner. By retaining The Criminal Defense Group, you will know that your case is being handled by a Boston criminal lawyer who will examine every single detail of your case and leave no stone unturned to ensure that your case concludes with the best possible outcome.

We Examine Every Detail

Criminal proceedings are incredibly complex, and at The Criminal Defense Group, we know that the legal process can seem so complicated that it may not even seem worth it to pursue a case that you feel is already too incriminating. We are here to assure you that making snap decisions like this will be absolutely detrimental to your case. Although we are not saying that a criminal defense case will be easy and we cannot guarantee any result, we do remind you that, with legal assistance in your corner, the legal process can be much more manageable. Common defenses to your allegations could include:

  • Self-defense
  • Defense of others or property
  • Case of mistaken identity
  • Inability to carry out the act
  • Alibi defenses
  • Some sort of extenuating mental incapacity, insanity, or substance abuse

Remember, just because you have been arrested for a crime does not mean that you will be convicted of the crime. The prosecution will have the burden of proving that you have committed a crime -- beyond a reasonable doubt. With a hard-hitting criminal defense strategy, your legal representative can rebut any evidence brought against you and ensure that the prosecution plays by the rules.

Challenging the Prosecution & Evidence Against You

At The Criminal Defense Group, we are entirely devoted to our clients. We have more than 65 years of combined experience and have used our years of practice to stand by our clients through every stage of the criminal process. From the moment you call us after an arrest to your pre-trial hearings to the final outcome of your case, you can trust that a skilled Boston criminal defense lawyer from our firm will be right by your side vigorously defending your rights. If you are a client of our firm, then you can rest assured that you have a strong foundation to depend on and trust.
