Amber Gordon, Attorney at Law is committed to providing you with the tireless advocacy you need. We are not afraid to go to trial and fight for you every step of the way.
Types of Homicide Charges
Homicide occurs when one individual kills another individual. It is a common misconception that homicide and murder are synonymous. There are several different types and subcategories of crimes that fall under the umbrella of homicide.
We can represent you if you have been charged with:
- Capital murder
- First-degree murder
- Second-degree murder
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Voluntary manslaughter
- Involuntary manslaughter
- Self-defense killing or justified killing
The circumstances of your case will determine the charges you receive. For example, when a person is killed in the heat of passion, the case may be tried as voluntary manslaughter. When someone is killed as a result of negligence or reckless behavior, that case may be charged as involuntary manslaughter. Because this area of the law is so complex, it is important to work with an experienced homicide defense attorney in Los Angeles if you or a loved one is facing charges.
