Understanding Your Charges: Murder, Manslaughter & Homicide

While both manslaughter and murder involve homicide, there are legal distinctions between the two. First-degree murder is a crime of "intent." This means that the defendant planned to murder and intended to kill. In order for the prosecution to prove murder in the first degree, they must first prove intent.

One example of murder in the first degree would be where the defendant entered a home with a shotgun and went to each bedroom killing the residents as they slept in their beds.

In a felony murder case, it isn't necessary for the prosecution to prove intent, only that a murder occurred during the commission of another felony crime or during an attempt to commit another crime. In the state of New Jersey, murder is a first-degree felony crime that is punishable by 30 years in prison to life without parole.

    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client
    "Attentive, fast responding, professional, expert"
    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.

    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome.
