You need an experienced criminal defence lawyer by your side who knows how to fight manslaughter charges and protect your rights. We will work hard to build a strong case in your defence and ensure you're treated fairly in court.
Manslaughter is when a person kills another person without intending to do so. It can be either voluntary or involuntary, depending on the circumstances. Voluntary manslaughter is when someone kills someone else intentionally but without premeditation (such as in the heat of passion). Involuntary manslaughter occurs when someone causes another person's death while committing an illegal act that they should have known would result in death. There is no minimum penalty for manslaughter, but you could face up to life in prison, depending on the circumstances.
