Murder or Manslaughter

Murder is the most serious crime against a person and can carry a life imprisonment sentence. It is a charge which can only be dealt with by a Jury.

At Liberty Law we have experience in such defending such trials, obtaining successful outcomes which include the dropping of charges against a client, a more lenient sentence or a downgrade to a manslaughter charge.

To defend such charges we need expert opinion. We have access to:

  • Forensic scientists involving DNA, blood and drug analysts
  • Pathologists
  • Crash analysis experts
  • Medical practitioners
  • Firearm experts
  • Private investigators
  • Forensic analysts for phone data
  • Other experts or analysts as required

We represent our clients zealously by questioning everything and yielding to nothing to ensure a strong defence.

For more information about the penalties and definitions of murder and manslaughter, see Part 8 of The Crimes Act 1961.
