San Diego Homicide and Murder Attorneys

Get 25 Years of Experience on Your Side

Homicide is often considered synonymous with murder, but that is not the case. A homicide refers to any act in which a person intentionally or unintentionally kills another person. This can refer to murder and manslaughter, which themselves have different degrees and classifications. As the circumstances of each homicide case will be different, the penalties for each case will similarly vary.

At the Law Offices of Randy M. Grossman, our experienced criminal defense attorney provides dedicated legal representation for people charged with homicide in San Diego. Call (858) 707-9800 to schedule a free consultation.

First-Degree Murder and Second-Degree Murder

Murder is the intentional killing of another person. The difference between first-degree murder and second-degree murder is a question of premeditation. First-degree murder is premeditated with malice aforethought, meaning that the person who committed the murder planned the act. Second-degree murder is not premeditated or planned, but instead committed in the heat of passion.

Voluntary Manslaughter and Involuntary Manslaughter

Manslaughter is the accidental killing of another person. This is different than murder since there is no intentional act involved. Voluntary manslaughter may refer to a killing that occurs when a person is provoked or experiences a diminished capacity to reason. Involuntary manslaughter refers to an unintentional killing that results from negligence. One example would be causing a motor vehicle accident that resulted in the death of another motorist.

You Have a Right to Fair Treatment

It should come as no surprise that homicide charges are taken very seriously by the court. Given the severity of the crime, people are often quick to attack the first person accused. Regardless of the circumstances of the arrest, you have a right to fair treatment in court. If you have been charged with homicide in San Diego, our experienced homicide and murder defense lawyer will treat you with the dignity and respect you deserve during this difficult time.
