Santa Monica Vehicular Manslaughter Attorney

Vehicular Manslaughter

A DUI resulting in vehicular manslaughter usually results in felony charges and these are subject to California's "three strikes rule".  This law rules that penalties be automatically increased for each subsequent penalty.  The increases are severe and a third felony conviction will result in a sentence of 25 years to life in prison.  It is important to note that felonies are counted by individual charges, which means multiple felony charges could occur in one individual case.

It is vital that a Santa Monica DUI lawyer be contacted immediately if you have been charged with vehicular manslaughter.  Do not speak to police without an attorney present, as any statements you make can be used against you.  Amidst the fear and confusion, the knowledge and skill of an experienced attorney can be of immense assistance in the fight for your freedom. 

Culver City DUI Attorney for Santa Monica, Brentwood, Marina Del Rey & All of West LA

At Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP, one of the first things we will do after taking on your case is to demand the evidence the state plans to use against you.  From there we can conduct an investigation as to its validity.  It can sometimes be found that breath tests or blood tests were not administered legally or correctly.  Additionally, we can investigate the circumstances of the accident if it is at all possible you were not the direct cause.

The actions we will take can affect which charges are ultimately filed, if any, which in turn affects the possible penalties involved.  Where sentencing is involved, we will attempt to have penalties reduced as far as possible.  Our Criminal Defense Department will use our resources to defend your rights and endeavor to secure your freedom.
