Seek Experienced Defense Immediately

If you have been accused of either murder or manslaughter, you cannot afford to delay. You will need legal representation from the very beginning of your case to ensure you are treated well within the legal system. We also prioritize the review of all evidence and testimonies to make sure every fact and detail is appropriately taken into account.

Both murder and manslaughter imply that you took someone's life, though each charge is slightly different:

  • Murder – The life was intentionally taken. First-degree murder implies that the crime was premeditated.
  • Manslaughter – The life was accidentally taken, either by negligence or recklessness.

Regardless of your specific charges, being accused of killing another person may have serious consequences. Even if acquitted, your trial is likely to become part of the public record. Many people may become aware of your situation, depending on the news attention your trial received.

You can trust our experienced legal team to help you build the best defense for your case. You are entitled to quality legal representation and we can protect your rights every step of the way.

Facing Charges of Criminal Manslaughter

Even if you have not been formally charged with a crime, but suspect you may soon be, we recommend consulting with our firm. Do not worry about looking "guilty" for seeking legal representation. Retaining an attorney is a smart choice for these sensitive situations.
