Charged with Murder or Manslaughter?
Our Bloomington Criminal Defense Attorneys Fight for Your Rights
Prosecutors work their hardest on
murder and manslaughter cases. If you have been accused of one of these crimes,
you can be certain the prosecutors want to convict you. They want to see
that you are imprisoned for life, or that you face the death penalty,
and they will not rest until they achieve that goal.
At Johnson Law Group, our experienced Bloomington criminal defense lawyers
have successfully fought these charges many times. We strive to work harder
than our opponents, to be aggressive in order to protect you and your
future from the repercussions of a conviction. If you are under investigation,
or if you have been charged, you can be confident that we will fight for you.

Charges our attorneys defend against include, but are not limited to:
- Murder and homicide
- Manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter
- Reckless homicide
- Attempted murder
The difference between murder and involuntary manslaughter has mostly to
do with intention. A person who unintentionally kills an individual, without
lawful justification, commits involuntary manslaughter if they recklessly
performed an action which was likely to cause death or great bodily harm.
However, if the reckless action that caused death involved a vehicle,
then the crime is reckless homicide. These are challenging cases, but
you can be certain our lawyers are up to the challenge.
