Murder and Manslaughter

Homicide offences are accepted to be the most serious charge a person may face and we understand that if you, or a loved one is facing a murder investigation this will likely be the most stressful experience of your life.

Our team have dealt with many murder and manslaughter cases and we take pride in the service we give people facing this traumatic episode. Murder and manslaughter cases are often very complex and often include a large amount of evidence, such as expert evidence in relation to cause of death and post mortem examinations. Our team will examine all evidence in meticulous detail, and challenge its credibility and admissibility when appropriate.

If you are convicted of murder, you face a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment, with a minimum tariff, often in excess of 20 years. It is therefore crucial to instruct a criminal law solicitor immediately to advise you on your rights and prepare your defence.
