New Brunswick Manslaughter Defense Attorney

Experienced and Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyer

Aggravated Manslaughter | Reckless Manslaughter | Involuntary Manslaughter

In New Jersey, when you have caused the death of another person, the charges can range from 1st degree murder to manslaughter to negligent homicide. The crime of manslaughter has a broad legal definition and can involve situations where you have acted with extreme indifference to the value of human life, or instances where you acted on impulse or as a result of an uncontrollable urge or passion. If you have been charged with manslaughter, you want an experienced and aggressive attorney to fight for your rights.

Attention Parents!

If your child has been accused of a crime it is important that neither you or your children answer questions, make statements or consent to searches by law enforcement.

Protecting Your Rights When You Have Been Charged with Manslaughter

We handle the defense of all types of manslaughter claims, including allegations of:

  • Aggravated manslaughter—Aggravated manslaughter requires that you acted reckless, that your recklessness demonstrated an extreme indifference to the value of human life, and that your recklessness caused the death of another person
  • Reckless manslaughter—You can be charged with reckless manslaughter (NJSA 2C:11-4b(1)) if you acted recklessly and caused the death of another. There is no requirement that your behavior show an indifference to the value of human life.
  • Involuntary manslaughter—You can be charged with involuntary manslaughter if you cause the death of another person through an act committed in the heat of passion from reasonable provocation
