Van Nuys Homicide Defense Lawyer

Murder & Manslaughter Defense in Southern California

Homicide is defined as the act of killing another human being. Homicide is not always illegal, as in cases where it is justifiable (for example, a law enforcement officer killing another in the line of duty, a person acting in self defense or when carrying out the death sentence.) When a person unlawfully causes the death of another, this is often referred to as criminal homicide.

There are two main types of criminal homicide: manslaughter and murder. These are further categorized into first degree murder, second degree murder, voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Specific criminal charges for homicide will vary depending upon the specific circumstances of the offense, and whether the accused was acting purposefully, knowingly, recklessly or negligently.
