A Scary Situation

Many of the vehicular homicide and DUI manslaughter cases I handle involve upstanding citizens who were out for nothing more than a good time prior to the accident. They may have had one too many drinks and now, in addition to facing an alcohol-related offense, they may be accused of hurting or killing someone in an accident. This can be overwhelming for most people. The fact that they are now facing possible prison time, large fines, restitution for damages, and the suspension or revocation of their driver's license, needs to be addressed by an experienced criminal defense attorney.
