St. Louis Murder & Manslaughter Lawyer

Are you facing allegations of murder or manslaughter?

If you have been accused of killing another person, then you could be facing charges of murder or manslaughter. It is extremely important that you obtain representation from a St. Louis criminal defense attorney at The Hammer Law Firm, LLC, because Missouri laws bring very harsh penalties against those convicted of these crimes. Our firm has defended clients in more than 100 criminal jury cases in our 30 years of practice, so you can rest assured that we are well prepared to handle your case as well.

Murder and manslaughter are distinguished by the amount of thought that was put in to committing the crime, as well as the cause for committing the murder. An individual will be charged with first-degree murder if he or she is found to have killed a person with premeditation and second-degree murder if he or she killed a person without forethought. Manslaughter, on the other hand, may be prosecuted if the person killed another without forethought and with provocation. Someone who assists another with suicide may also be charged with manslaughter.
