An Overview of Vehicular Homicide

Even though a driver may have never intended to harm another person, they can still face harsh consequences if the courts find their actions to be considered reckless. Reckless driving is defined as any conscious disregard of substantial risk. This can include driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI/DWI) or falling asleep at the wheel.

A conviction can bring the following penalties:

  • A second degree felony on a person’s record
  • Up to 10 years in state prison
  • Fines up to $150,000
  • Driver’s license suspension from 5 years to life

If the fatal collision occurred within a school zone, the penalties can worsen by up to an additional 10 years in prison, along with a first degree felony charge. Since death by auto charges carry such extreme consequences, retaining a hard-hitting defense is crucial. By consulting with my firm, I can review the specifics of your case and craft a custom strategy to give you the best chances of securing a desirable verdict.

Protect Your Future with a Top-Rated Defense

A vehicular manslaughter charge can derail a person’s life in an instant. This can happen to anyone, and it is not uncommon for this type of offense to be someone’s first brush with the law. If you should ever find yourself in this type of situation, I am willing to stand by your side and fight tooth and nail to defend your rights. Unlike a public defender, I can give you the personalized attention that your case deserves, and I am committed to exploring every opportunity to pursue a reduction or dismissal of your charges.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.

    "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.
    - Former Client
    "An invaluable asset to anyone"
    Mr. Gilbert is an excellent attorney. His knowledge and experience make him an invaluable asset to anyone looking for an attorney.

    "Ryan could not have been more helpful"
    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. Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!
