Vehicular Manslaughter ∙ Vehicular Homicide ∙ Involuntary Manslaughter

Whether you are facing vehicular manslaughter charges following a fatal DUI accident or are facing vehicular assault charges in connection with a hit and run accident, there is obviously a lot at stake. The court will look at aggravating factors, such as:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Other gross negligence that led to the crash

Any of these factors may compel the court to seek a harsher sentence as a matter of seeking justice for the victim's family. That is why it is so critical to have a lawyer who is dedicated to protecting your interests. Thorough investigation and case preparation skills combined with vigorous trial representation are essential to winning such high profile cases.

In addition to defending clients facing vehicular manslaughter charges in Illinois, Mr. Nathe also provides exceptional defense to clients facing other manslaughter charges, such as reckless or negligent homicide.
