Nevada Homicide Defense Lawyers
Our attorney Peter S. Christiansen has taken part in many capital murder cases and is considered by many to be one of the most successful death penalty attorneys in Nevada. Our firm took part in one of the only federal death penalty cases in the history of the state and made presentations to the Department of Justice and was able to get the death penalty removed.
Peter S. Christiansen has obtained acquittals in capital defense litigation as well as avoided the death penalty in double, triple and quadruple homicides. In fact, Peter S. Christiansen has likely tried more murder cases in the last decade than any other private attorney in the State of Nevada.
We aggressively represent our clients through all phases of their murder cases, including investigation of police reports, interviewing key witnesses, and thorough trial preparation. We have extensive trial experience and do everything we can to protect our clients’ rights and freedoms.
If a client is sentenced and faces the possibility of the death penalty, our firm will conduct a mitigation investigation and be present at the penalty hearing. We establish the background of our client by investigating grade school records, medical records, employment history, criminal history, and other factors which may have contributed to the alleged behavior. By doing this, we are often able to convince the court to show leniency when they are sentencing.
