Vehicular Homicide & Vehicular Assault
Being charged with a crime that involves causing serious physical harm to another person or causing the death of another person is a difficult situation. In addition to the serious penalties that may be imposed, added pressure from victims’ families, special interest groups, and the media creates an emotionally charged situation. These cases are also challenging for attorneys because the law in this area is complex, there is potential civil liability, and the evidence frequently includes expert testimony in areas such as medicine, pharmacology, accident reconstruction, chemical testing, and field sobriety testing. For charges of Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular Assault, and Involuntary Manslaughter in Columbus and central Ohio, you need an experienced attorney that understands the law, has a grasp of the various types of evidence, and works well with people.Attorney For Vehicular Homicide Defense And Vehicular Assault Defense
I am an experienced criminal defense lawyer, and my practice is focused on representing clients charged with D.U.I./O.V.I. and serious vehicular crimes. I have the expertise necessary to effectively defend clients charged with Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular Assault, and Involuntary Manslaughter. To focus on this area of criminal defense, I have undergone training specific to these types of cases, including courses in breath testing, blood testing, urine testing, and field sobriety testing, as well as programs presented by the National College for D.U.I. defense (NCDD). I also authored a chapter of Defending D.U.I. Vehicular Homicide Cases by Aspatore Publishing, a book that goes “inside the minds” of nine leading D.U.I. lawyers from across the country to gain insight on their approaches to these cases.Strategies For Defending Vehicular Homicide And Vehicular Assault
In the book Defending D.U.I. Vehicular Homicide Cases, I wrote a chapter titled “Settlement Strategies For D.U.I. Vehicular Homicide Cases”. That chapter outlines my three-part strategy for negotiating, as well as my seven-step system for evaluating settlement offers. The title of the chapter, however, may be misleading. “Settlement strategies” does not refer to the quickest ways to make a deal. Effective negotiations and favorable settlements in these cases occur primarily due to investigation and preparation. A good defense begins with a comprehensive investigation, continues with discovery and litigating legal issues, and culminates in thorough trial preparation. Negotiations with a defense attorney that is well-prepared are very different than negotiations with a defense attorney that begs for a good deal because his client is a nice guy. Case preparation is crucial for cases of Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular Assault, and Involuntary Manslaughter and is also essential for felony DUI defense, repeat DUI offenses, and first offense O.V.I. cases.Representation For Vehicular Homicide And Vehicular Assault
