Orlando DUI & Vehicular Homicide Defense Attorneys
Charges of vehicular homicide are relatively rare, and even seasoned criminal defense lawyers can often work for years without handling a case. At the Orlando, Florida, criminal defense law firm of Leventhal & Slaughter, LLC we have handled numerous vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter cases; we are experienced in successfully identifying defenses to vehicle-related crimes, and in winning full acquittal or dismissal of charges.
Our experience includes defending individuals speeding in residential neighborhoods, individuals distracted on turnpikes and individuals accused of DUI/DWI resulting in injury and death of others. We are familiar with government prosecutorial methods and in laws governing DUI/DWI investigation.
In one case, a police officer left a blood sample in the trunk of his squad car for three days. We were able to prove that blood produces its own alcohol through fermentation if left alone for that period of time.
Our DUI/DWI, vehicular homicide and vehicular manslaughter case record speaks for itself. Recent successes include:
- Our client killed another on a turnpike while manipulating his radio dial. Our representation resulted in him receiving only a traffic ticket.
- Our client was charged with vehicular homicide. He was accused of driving recklessly and of playing tag with another vehicle, resulting in a death. Investigators were unable to assess the speed of his vehicle because of rain, and a jury acquitted our client in just 18 minutes.
- Our client was attacked by a man and struck him with his vehicle unintentionally while trying to flee. Our client was accused of vehicular homicide. We successfully had the charge reduced to leaving the scene of an accident and later had the case fully dismissed with prejudice.
