Defending People Who Are Accused Of Homicide
Any death that happens when another person is at fault is considered a homicide. Many people have the misconception that homicide means the same thing as murder. However, a murder involves the malicious intent to kill, and homicide does not.
If you are facing homicide or murder charges, you are facing very serious charges that could result in lengthy incarceration or, in some cases, the death penalty. When your future and your life are on the line, do not turn to just any criminal defense attorney. Rather, turn to a top-quality Louisiana murder charges attorney at Steven J. Moore, LLC.

Real results mean not guilty verdicts, reduced charges, dropped cases and eliminating the option of the death penalty. When you face serious charges, you need a skilled homicide defense lawyer with a background of success and a clear vision for how to build a strong defense on your behalf.
Talk to our attorney now if you or a loved one has been charged with any of the following:
- Murder or manslaughter allegations
- Second-degree murder
- First-degree murder

- Vehicular negligent homicide and vehicular manslaughter charges in a fatal drunk driving accident
There are three types of homicide: criminal, excusable and justifiable. A criminal homicide has severe penalties upon conviction. An excusable or justifiable homicide – such as killing someone in self-defense or while defending someone else – is not considered criminal.
Our defense attorney will immediately launch a complete investigation into the charges. We have developed winning strategies for more than 25 years and have successfully proven when our clients are innocent, falsely accused or have acted in self-defense.
