We will seek expert reports to challenge the evidence brought against you. Throughout the process we are here to provide legal advice, support, protection and representation to the best of our ability.

Implications of murder and manslaughter

Here in the UK if a person is found guilty of murder then the court must issue them with a life sentence. With manslaughter there is no mandatory sentence although a judge can impose a maximum sentence of life imprisonment, however the average prison sentence typically ranges from 2 to 10 years. You cannot deal with this alone. Speak to us at ABV Solicitors today and let us delegate a top criminal solicitor to your case who will be with you at every stage of the process to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
