A Comprehensive Homicide Defense Starts Early

Whether you are dealing with criminal accusations yourself or supporting a loved one who is facing charges, it can be a very stressful time, especially if the allegation is one of homicide.

It’s one thing to try to understand what all of the legal terms mean, but adding on the pressure of thinking about the potential consequences you could face can be paralyzing. It is essential to start working with an attorney to build your defense against these charges as soon as possible.

Homicide Charges Can Be Complicated

In Wisconsin, many crimes can fall under the term, “homicide.” The critical distinction between a homicide crime and felony murder is that felony murder occurs while committing or attempting to commit a specific type of crime.

This does not mean that homicide is a “less serious” charge. Many types of homicide are classified as felonies. If you or a loved one is facing homicide charges, building a strong defense from the beginning is critical. We have experience in helping people fight against homicide charges, including:

  • All degrees of intentional homicide
  • First and second-degree reckless homicide
  • Homicide charges that include weapons or vehicles
