Murder & Manslaughter

Michigan Criminal Defense Lawyer

Crimes involving the death of another person are typically the most serious that an attorney may have to deal with. Depending on the case, the defendant's very life may be on the line.

If you or someone you love is under investigation for, has been arrested, or has been charged with murder or manslaughter, it is important that you talk to a criminal defense attorney immediately. At Freedman Law Group, we represent clients in these cases throughout Michigan. We understand that all you know and have worked for may be at stake. If you work with a Michigan criminal defense attorney at our firm, we will fight for you and will strive to reach the best outcome possible for your unique case.

Manslaughter usually involves negligent, accidental or unintentional homicides, and sometimes those that are committed in the "heat of passion".
