Oshawa Lawyers For Manslaughter And Murder Defence

Though it may seem like murder charges can be resolved within a 30-minute time frame on television, real cases are almost never that simple. If you have been charged with murder or manslaughter, you will face very real consequences of mandatory jail time.

At Affleck & Barrison LLP, we put in the time and exercise the requisite due diligence to build strong defences for clients being charged with murder or manslaughter. Our firm has represented clients throughout the Durham Region and points east of the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario since 1992. Our lawyers maintain a reputation for providing vigorous trial defence combined with client-focused advocacy.

Building Your Defence Against Serious Charges 

Altercations that escalate into violent criminal offences rarely have just one side of the story. Our job is to tell your side of the story. We will analyze the evidence involved, from police reports to witness statements and testimony required to build your most vigorous defence.

Our lawyers have experience defending clients charged with:

  • First-degree murder – Planned and deliberate killing, whether for monetary gain, at the direction of another, or in the act of another offence such as sexual assault, hijacking or terrorist activity
  • Second-degree murder – Any murder not classified as a first-degree murder
  • Manslaughter – Involuntary killing, or any offence not found to be culpable homicide or infanticide

Our lawyers are not strangers to the courtroom, and they will take your case to trial if necessary to protect your rights and future. Should negotiations with the Crown’s office be in your best interest, we will advise you accordingly and work toward an optimal result.
