DuPage County Manslaughter Defense Attorney

Involving a criminal defense lawyer is one of the most important things you can do if you have been accused of manslaughter. Whether or not you have been formally charged, you may be in danger of facing serious felony charges and harsh penalties ranging from 2 to 15 years in state prison and a fine of up to $25,000. If an attorney is able to get involved early in the process, he or she can work immediately to limit any investigation against you while aggressively defending your rights to the fullest extent of the law.

The team at the Law Offices of Howard J. Wise & Associates is driven and experienced. We are here to protect and guide you in the face of manslaughter charges in the DuPage County area, using our experience as former prosecutors and our familiarity with local courthouses, judges, prosecutors, law enforcement and court personnel. A DuPage County manslaughter defense attorney at our firm can begin helping you at virtually any stage of your case, even if you have just been contacted by law enforcement as a person of interest in a criminal investigation. Taking preventative measures is a key part of helping you avoid formal charges in the first place or building a compelling case that results in a dismissal of your charges before trial.

Manslaughter Charges in DuPage County

There are different types of manslaughter that a person may be accused of committing. The basic definition of this offense is a criminal homicide committed in a negligent or reckless manner. The specific circumstances of the case will influence the severity of charges and the sentence that the court may enforce upon a conviction. Our law firm can handle any type of case of this kind:

  • Involuntary manslaughter
  • Reckless homicide
  • Voluntary manslaughter of an unborn child
  • Involuntary manslaughter and reckless homicide of an unborn child

We also represent defendants accused of murder. These cases are among the most serious that we handle, and we provide equally serious criminal defense counsel to counter aggressive efforts by prosecuting attorneys and law enforcement to put you behind bars.
