Many people mistakenly think that hiring a murder defense lawyer will make them look guilty. They think a defense attorney is too costly, and feel that the police investigation alone will exonerate them. These people are wrong, and often end up incriminating themselves.
Don’t take risks with your future. Call Zaki Ali, Attorney at Law at (765) 697-9002 before you speak with law enforcement.
Hiring Attorney Zaki Ali during the early stages of the investigation will give you a huge leg-up compared to waiting for trial. Our Indianapolis murder defense lawyer can make sure you are questioned appropriately, and are not subjected to police abuse or brutality. He can also investigate the crime at the same time as the police, allowing him to craft a maximally effective defense.
Clients choose to trust their case to Zaki Ali because he offers:
If the police are taking the time to detain and question you, chances are they suspect that you’re guilty. Nothing you say or do will help you talk your way out of an arrest—exercise your right to remain silent and have a lawyer present! Talking to police may only help them develop evidence against you.
Even if you wish to plead guilty to murder charges, our experienced criminal attorney can help you set up a deal or plea bargain for a reduced sentence or otherwise reduced consequences. Confessing to police will often lead to a conviction with harsher, more severe consequences than in a plea bargain.
Unlike many other states, Indiana does not divide murder into different degrees or levels. Instead, all Indianapolis murder charges are grouped under the same statute. However, there are separate manslaughter statutes which can cover both accidental and "heat of passion" killing. Indiana does allow for the death penalty in murder cases, so it is vitally important to hire an Indianapolis murder defense attorney to help protect your life.
Murder is defined in Indiana as any of the following acts:
The intentional killing of another person
The killing of another person while committing, or attempting to commit, certain felonies
If your lawyer can show that the conditions listed above were not met, it can result in lesser penalties, reduced sentencing, or even dropped charges. For example, a killing committed in self-defense may be subject to lesser charges. When you retain Attorney Zaki Ali, he works to combat the prosecution’s accusations by challenging all evidence against you and crafting an airtight defense on your behalf.
