You deserve an aggressive defense from an experienced manslaughter defense attorney.
Although manslaughter charges are not quite as serious as murder charges, they still carry significant penalties and need to be promptly and vigorously opposed by an experienced defense attorney.
If you have been accused of voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, or vehicular manslaughter, you need to remember two facts:
- You have the right to remain silent
- You have the right to an attorney
Do not say anything to law enforcement until you have hired us to represent you. As your manslaughter defense lawyer, we can help you cooperate with the investigation in a way that will protect your rights and your position in the case.
Possible Manslaughter Defenses
As your manslaughter defense attorney, we will thoroughly investigate the facts of your case to determine the best course of action for your defense. Depending on what we uncover, we may be able to disprove the charge with one of these arguments:
- You were acting in self-defense
- You did not actually cause the death
- The death was an accident (not involving criminal negligence)
- There is insufficient evidence
