Defense Against Homicide Charges in the San Fernando Valley

If you are facing any degree of homicide charges in Southern California, you should think twice before relying on a public defender for your representation. Murder cases of this nature require aggressive defense from an attorney who can apply his or her full attention to the case at hand. A public defender, while competent, will likely have an overwhelming case load that will not allow him or her to pay adequate attention to your particular case.

Alan Kessler, A Law Corporation​ can help with any of the following types of homicide charges:

  • First-degree murder: As the highest charge of homicide, first-degree murder is reserved for cases that involve premeditation of the killing.
  • Second-degree murder: This charge is often assumed to be a compromise between a first-degree murder charge and a voluntary manslaughter charge. Second-degree murder charges imply that the killing was committed voluntarily but without the same type of premeditation that is associated with first-degree murder.
  • Voluntary manslaughter: Voluntary manslaughter denotes a killing that was voluntary but that did not involve any sort of premeditation. The act was committed in the heat of the moment.
  • Involuntary manslaughter: As the least severe of all homicide charges, involuntary manslaughter is the unintentional killing of another person. Murder of this degree is typically the result of negligent or reckless behavior.
