Murder Vs. Manslaughter

If you are accused of causing another person's death, you are putting your life in the hands of your attorney. This decision cannot be made lightly. Your lawyer must have both the skill to plea bargain effectively and the ability to defend you at trial.

An Experienced Law Firm On Your Side

We understand what is at stake when you are facing murder or manslaughter charges. Our firm takes the time to explain your options and how any potential outcomes of the case may impact your life and your future. Though sentences may vary, we can anticipate the punishments you may be facing and work tirelessly to see that punishments are minimized or prevented whenever possible.

The police investigation is often unreliable. We get all evidence retested, and use private investigators to interview witnesses and identify other suspects, in order to create reasonable doubt. We also explore all viable defenses — self-defense, heat of passion, fear of harm or right to protect one's home from intruders — to plea bargain or to give a jury a lesser offense to consider in deliberations.
