Vehicular Homicide

Vehicular homicide is a unique type of homicide charge.  Distinct from murder, which involves some level of premeditation and intent to kill, vehicular homicide is a type of manslaughter charge. If you are being charged with vehicular homicide, it is imperative that you contact me.  Vehicular homicide charges can be filed in cases such as:

  • DUI accidents
  • Hit and Run accidents
  • And more…

As a vehicular homicide defense lawyer, I can stay ahead of the prosecution as they build their case due to my years of experience as a former Deputy District Attorney and Prosecutor. I know what they are looking for, and the approaches they may take when building their cases. My many years of prosecution experience can work in your favor as I strategize your defense.

I have built my extensive experience in criminal trials on both sides of the courtroom. For several years I have been defending people charged with many different crimes including those involving various homicide charges. I began my criminal law career as a prosecutor and District Attorney. The perspective that I gained by prosecuting crimes in Arapahoe, Douglas and Jefferson Counties gives me a head start in preparing your defense.

Vehicular Assault is the result of someone injured due to reckless driving or DUI. The injured typically suffers serious bodily harm. Often the person is seated in the same car as the driver. The injury must be the result of the driver’s negligence or recklessness.


The complexities of vehicular manslaughter, homicide or assault cases are not  your typical criminal attorney’s cases. The victims and the victims family’s position creates a deeply emotional environment which needs to be handled with dignity and respect. Regardless of the criminal evidence the lawyer will need to test all the conclusions made by investigators, police, crime lab and Colorado Department of Health. On occasion mistakes are made and a good criminal attorney will be sure to leave no stone unturned before proceeding to trial or entering a plea.

Call us right now if you think you are a suspect in a vehicular homicide case – if you will be questioned regarding a crime – or if you have been arrested. I believe that contacting a criminal lawyer at the earliest possible time is the best course of action for you.

If you have already been arrested, call now too. The faster you retain a vehicular homicide attorney, the better off your case will be.
