Understanding The Difference Between Homicide, Murder And Manslaughter

Homicide is a legal term that encompasses various charges, including murder and manslaughter. Murder charges imply the intent to kill, while manslaughter charges can stem from reckless behavior without the intention to kill. Murder charges carry degrees from first to third, defining the level of intent and premeditation involved.

The sentences for a homicide conviction almost always include multiple years of incarceration. A conviction will affect not just you but also your family. Our homicide attorneys are well-versed in the nuances of these charges and are prepared to navigate the complexities of your case.

Carefully Crafting A Strong Defense

Building a defense against a homicide or manslaughter charge requires a strategic and informed approach. We consider all possible defenses, some of which may include:

  • Establishing an alibi
  • Challenging the prosecution’s evidence
  • Claiming self-defense
  • Demonstrating the death was accidental

Each defense method requires the thorough investigation and robust legal arguments that our team has provided again and again for our clients. Our criminal law attorneys are adept at dissecting the prosecution’s case, identifying weaknesses and advocating for our clients with unyielding tenacity. We have helped dozens of people get charges dismissed, reduced and acquitted, even when it seemed impossible.
