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.

  • I wish there were more attorneys like Greg!

    “I wish there were more attorneys like Greg. It seems like most attorneys just want a quick check these days. Greg is not only the best, he is also a fighter and he simply get things done. After being presented by several lawyers, Greg was the one that got the job done. Thanks to Greg i was able to avoid Prison time, avoid probation and walked away without a felony conviction. That's unheard of, i'm not saying other lawyers aren't good, what i am saying is that Greg is the BEST. I'm the proof of it. I've seen Greg in action turning every rock to get things going in your favor. I was lucky to have met him by mistake. I was referred to Greg in shackles by another attorney who could've presented me cause my lawyer was so aweful. lol”

  • Very good lawyer to have on your side.

    “We were in need of a lawyer really fast and after doing a lot of research, we had a meeting with Mr. Rosenfeld and decided to hire him on the spot. He was very helpful in letting us know what we were up against when it came to my son's case. He told us what to expect and what he will do for us. The prosecutor was being very difficult in the fact that she rejected everything Mr. Rosenfeld tried to negotiate for us. He worked really hard for us and in the end he got us a better deal than we expected. He was always available 24/7. Very good lawyer to have on your side.”

    Client

  • I felt he was genuinely standing behind me in court.

    “He exceeded my expectations by keeping in communication with me, updating me throughout the course of my case and taking the the time to dig into the details of my case to get my charges dropped. Despite a long history of traffic violations I felt he was genuinely standing behind me in court.”

    Previous Client

  • I can sincerely attest to his effectiveness.

    “I highly recommend Gregory Rosenfeld to anyone as a criminal defense, federal crime, and appeals lawyer. I hired him as my lawyer and I am extremely satisfied with the results of his legal representation of me. He worked with me step by step in a diligent manner, ultimately getting my case dismissed. I can sincerely attest to his effectiveness.”

    Client

  • 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.”
