What a manslaughter charge and a murder charge do share, however, is that if convicted, you will face serious charges that will have a severely negative impact on the rest of your life.
If you, or someone close to you, has been accused of manslaughter, there is no time to wait. The longer you hold off on hiring representation, the less likely you are to get a fair hearing and reduced or dropped charges.
