Over 50 Years of Experience Handling Murder & Manslaughter Cases



There are fewer more serious charges than you can face than those of manslaughter or murder. The justice system, as it should, takes the loss of another human life extremely seriously, even when extenuating circumstances exist. District attorneys and prosecutors will work diligently to mount a strong case against you, and you could be sent to prison for decades if you are convicted.

Your first and most important move when arrested on murder or manslaughter charges is making contact with a Palmdale manslaughter or murder defense attorney. You should always remain calm and decline to make statements to the police until your lawyer is present. Murder and manslaughter charges can be brought at both the state and federal levels, and your life could literally depend upon a strong defense.

Depending on the circumstances in your case, charges brought against you could include:

  • Involuntary and voluntary manslaughter
  • Misdemeanor manslaughter
  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • First and second degree murder

Penalties can be as severe as they come, including life imprisonment and the death penalty. But a strong legal defense team can mount compelling arguments in your case including justifiable homicide, self-defense, and accidental death, among others.


We at the Law Offices of David M. Wallin understand the magnitude of the charges and possible penalties you face, and will work tenaciously to defend you in a court of law. Our skilled attorneys have the know-how and experience you seek and expect from a legal team with a combined 50 years of criminal defense work. We care about the results in your case, as your very life could depend upon our work. Protecting your legal rights and interests are never more important than when dealing with the serious charges of manslaughter and murder.
