Types of Homicide Cases We Defend

Although the word “homicide” is often used interchangeably with murder, it encompasses a variety of acts. 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.

Our attorney provides legal counsel for the following charges:

  • 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. For instance, a DUI manslaughter conviction could result in up to 15 years in prison. 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 West Palm Beach will scour every detail of your situation to challenge the other side’s assertions and expose weaknesses in their case. Understanding 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.

  • Exceptional defense attorney!

    “I found Greg Rosenfeld to be an experienced, aggressive compassionate defense attorney. I hired Mr. Rosenfeld to defend my daughter in a criminal case. I have hired other attorneys in the past and have found that most attorneys are attentive and engaged up until the moment they are paid. We had the opposite experience with Mr. Rosenfeld who stayed in constant communication, worked harder than any lawyer I've met and got results that far exceeded our expectations. He kept fighting when most would have given up. I think very highly of him both as a person and as Criminal Law Defense Attorney. Great job and I will gladly recommend you to anyone who needs an excellent Criminal Lawyer.”

  • He is second to none as far as I'm concerned.

    “Greg is extremely dedicated to your case and his diligence in covering every possible angle is incredible. He actually cares about his client's welfare and works many long and hard hours researching your case. He is second to none as far as I'm concerned. He won my case for me against a very corrupt opponent. He communicates when he says he's going to and can be reached without delay. I would hire him again without hesitation.”

  • Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us.

    “Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us. Our daughter had been in Florida for several years trying to overcome an opioid addiction. In 2015 she made a huge mistake due to financial hardship and attempted to shoplift. She was caught and was facing 2 felony charges. With a year sober and a steady job a public defender tried to get her a reduced sentence. She made at least a half-dozen court appearances and had since moved out of state but the prosecutor refused to budge. Our daughter had since obtained her commercial real estate license and had become engaged to be married. A felony conviction would have ended her career before it started. On the recommendation of a public defender we contacted and retained Attorney Rosenfeld with a court date and an irate prosecutor only days away. His compassion, and intimate knowledge of the Palm Beach court system and it’s judges and prosecutors enabled him to strike a deal that gave our daughter the chance of having the charges dropped after 6 months while submitting to 50 hours of community service and random drug testing. And he did so at a very reasonable cost. If you or a loved one need legal representation in the Palm Beach area, Attorney Rosenfeld is the one to call.”

  • Best lawyer I could've ever hired and I highly recommend him!

Best lawyer I could've ever hired and I highly recommend him!”

  • His composure, actions, and performance truly speak for what he is specialized, overly qualified, and destined to do!

    “First and foremost, I would love to thank this man beyond measures for the outstanding job he has done for me personally and the great relief he has bestowed upon my family. In January of 2017 I was charged and humiliated with a crime I was falsely accused of and was looking at a life sentence. Even with all the neglect from the detectives, I was incarcerated in jail nearly a year until Mr. Rosenfeld was able to persuade the judge and state attorney to release me back home with my family on house arrest for the remainder of the state's case proceedings. Upon that time, he also was able to accommodate me further by removing the strict regulations of the county's house arrest program and substitute it with a private company so I was able to still provide for my family with having so many obstacles that could potentially violate me and send me back into the jail. He has always given me nothing but respect and professionalism even when there were days when I was overly upset, emotional, and downright in wrong how I lashed out towards him behind the frustrations of my case. His composure, actions, and performance truly speak for what he is specialized, overly qualified, and destined to do! I can sit here proudly today and say I am a free man without any prosecution thanks to Greg and I highly recommend him to any and every person no matter the case big or small Mr. Rosenfeld can handle them all. Sincerely, his most satisfied customer.”
