Examples of homicide in Florida

The word “homicide” is often used interchangeably with murder and it often encompasses a variety of acts. In Florida, homicide is defined as one person taking another person’s life. The offenses housed under this term are separated by the actions that resulted in someone’s death. When you are accused of homicide, it is important to consult an experienced defense attorney that can provide a thorough defense for all offense under homicide.

Homicide cases we have successfully handled:

  • DUI Manslaughter: A person can be charged with this offense if they drove under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol and caused an accident that resulted in the death of another.
  • Murder: Under Florida law, there are three degrees of murder that differ in the manner in which the act was carried out.
  • Manslaughter
  • Vehicular homicide: Florida law defines this offense as the killing of another person when an individual drives a motor vehicle in a reckless manner.

Potential Penalties for a Homicide Conviction

The punishments you could face for being found guilty of a homicide offense depend on the type of act you are accused of committing. In West Palm Beach, a DUI manslaughter conviction could result in up to 15 years in prison and a maximum of $10,000 in fines. First-degree murder carries with it a maximum prison sentence of life without parole or the death penalty.

When a prosecutor seeks to land a conviction for a homicide offense, they must prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that you violated the elements of the crime. Our lawyers will help you to understand the severity of the charges and the effects of a conviction on your life. We will conduct a thorough investigation, speak with witnesses, and review evidence to present the facts of your circumstances and work toward achieving a “not guilty” verdict.

The sentencing of your crime will vary based on a few factors. For more details, contact our defense lawyers.

  • Best attorney!

    “Mr. Gregory Rosenfeld is 1 of the best attorneys I know, his work is amazing I have recommended friends to him and they have all said the same, God forbid I should ever get into any legal bumps again, but if that was to happen, I know I am definitely calling Mr. Gregory. Thank you soo much.”

    Previous Client

  • He's simply the best.

    “I have never ever met an attornery that is so passionate about getting his clients results LIKE Mr. Rosenfeld. I wish i could explain my previous legal situation in full detail but due to my own discretion i choose not to. Nevertheless, Greg was able to get me an early termination from a 10 year felony probation sentence. Prior to Greg, i was hiring and firing lawyers that were demmed to be the best in the business. When you're fighting for your life against the judicial system you want to make sure that your attorney is as hungry and passionate about getting you off as you are. Greg is a fighter. I reccomend him to everyone that i know. I'm not sure what his overall success rate is but i've reccomended at least two other people that are overally satistied with his results. There's a ton of attorneys out there, but Greg really fights for you. Trust me, i know and seen him do it for me. He's simply the best. These days i'm not breaking the law but i got Greg on speed dial.”

  • It's no wonder he was rated one of the top lawyers in the UNITED STATES!

    “I was faced with two second-degree felonies and a couple of third-degree felonies, and at times would stress to the point of anxiety attacks and breakdowns. Greg was always there to help me through it in any way he could. I called him after hours, on weekends, in the middle of the night, and he never hesitated to respond and assist me in whatever I needed help with. There is a reason why he is rated so highly on multiple platforms, with some of them regarded very prestigiously in the law community. He goes above and beyond to fight for you, and them beyond some more. Upon hiring Greg, he strategized a game plan, broke it down into simpler terms for me to understand, and through the course of a year, we executed that gam plan. Even with some curve balls thrown in, AKA unexpected issues, such as me catching a DUI while out on bail for 5 pending felonies, he was there for me, and reassured me that everything will be okay. The end result: Greg negotiated with the prosecutor to DROP the main felony charge, have them give me credit for the time I already served AND the days I spent in rehab, AND 3 years of probation, with the possibility of early termination at half, some community service, and restitution. NO other lawyer could have gotten this done. It is literally a miracle that I am not on house arrest right now, let alone incarcerated. Greg fought hard for me, and he achieved something that was close to a miracle. He is a godsend, and you can tell that he truly cares for you, as a person first and a client second. I would highly recommend hiring Greg for your legal issues. He is just short of a miracle worker, a very powerful, formidable and reputable lawyer to have on your side, and a true friend. He is definitely top three defense lawyers in palm beach, if not number one. But his compassion for the client and his genuine concern for you as a person, combined with his expertise, reputation, and skill sets make him by far the top lawyer in not only palm beach, but possibly south Florida.”

  • I would without a doubt refer Greg!

    “Greg was so amazingly awesome! He most definitely got the job done for me. Before hiring Greg I was beyond stressed about my case, I was at a stand still on what to do next to resolve it. As soon as I got him on my side all of the stress disappeared. He handled everything with such ease, constantly kept me in the loop and explained everything to me in a way I could understand. I would without a doubt refer Greg to anyone looking for an outstanding attorney!”
