Homicide Cases Carry Severe Consequences

At Dodge & Dodge, P.C., we have defended clients in hundreds of homicide cases involving a variety of circumstances. Juries have acquitted our clients of first-degree murder, second-degree murder and manslaughter. We have had homicide cases of all varieties dismissed during trial or before they even get to trial. If you are facing homicide charges, you are facing severe criminal penalties. Whether your charge involves murder, manslaughter or vehicular homicide, it is crucial that you have an experienced defense attorney fighting on your behalf.

Our experience and legal insight — from both a defender’s and a prosecutor’s perspective — are a direct benefit to our clients. We know how to prepare for a case of this magnitude and we understand what it takes to succeed. We understand the serious nature of a homicide case and the need to zealously advocate for our clients in a respectful manner.

From offices in Grand Rapids, our lawyers are well-equipped to defend clients throughout west Michigan. By using the technology at our disposal or seeking the insight of forensic experts, we can handle a broad range of cases, including:

  • First-degree murder
  • Second-degree murder
  • Voluntary manslaughter
  • Involuntary manslaughter
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Negligent homicide

Most people think of homicide cases in terms of entertainment media. However, books, movies and television rarely depict reality. A vehicular manslaughter case, for example, might entail a driver simply missing a traffic signal and colliding with another vehicle in an intersection — killing a passenger.

No matter the specific circumstances of your criminal case, you can count on aggressive, professional defense tailored to the facts of your situation.
