Homicide Defense Attorneys in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California
Perhaps the most serious crime possible is the killing of another human. Long the subject of movies, television and literature, homicide and its violence permeates our society.
Homicide does not always mean murder, however. There are several instances where the willful death of another is not a crime. The most common defense is The Right to Self Protection. In these cases, if you are attacked by another person, you may commit homicide to protect yourself. Other instances of this defense are often seen in law enforcement. Should a police officer’s life be threatened, s/he has the right to kill the offender without it being viewed as a homicide.
Additionally, certain other cases can be effective defenses against a homicide charge. These include acts during wartime and innocence due to mental illness.
