Homicide is the killing of a human being due to the act or omission of another person and includes such crimes as murder and manslaughter.
People accused of homicide have the same rights as any other criminal defendant, including the right to a lawyer, the right to a jury trial, the right to cross-examine witnesses, the right against self-incrimination and the right to produce evidence.
We always maintain your innocence while defending your charges, keeping in mind that not all homicides are crimes, particularly when there is a lack of criminal intent.
Noncriminal homicides include such things as killing in self-defense, hunting accidents or a car accident where someone is killed, but there was no violation of the law such as reckless driving or DUI. Many times, arguing self-defense, insanity or other affirmative defenses that may result in an acquittal can defend manslaughter or murder charges.
As experienced homicide attorneys, we can provide you with the criminal defense you need to protect your freedom.
