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.
Experience Yields Results
At our law firm, you will find murder & manslaughter defense attorneys who are former prosecutors and police officers. We know how our opponents work in these cases. We know that the prosecution will interview witnesses, look for fingerprints, do ballistics analyses, have autopsy reports, and obtain all sorts of expert opinions.
The full resources of the state will be against you. You need to even the odds with aggressive defense representation. We are committed to seeing that the charges against you are dismissed or that you are found not guilty.
Our record of success speaks for itself. In one case, we defended a man charged with murder and aggravated vehicular hijacking. The prosecutors worked for seven years investigating and building their case before filing charges. After one year of aggressive defense work on our part, we were able to get the murder charges dismissed.
Contact Johnson Law Group for the aggressive representation you need and deserve.
