Our Mission: ”To empower, educate, and defend those charged with criminal offenses in Wisconsin and achieve the best possible outcome for their case.”Tracey Wood

Madison, WI Murder & Manslaughter Lawyer

In The News

Facing a murder or manslaughter charge is life-altering and can affect not only your future, but your reputation as well. The consequences for such a serious charge can be terrifying, but it is important to remember that even the most daunting charges can be reduced or even dismissed.

Just because you are charged with a crime, doesn’t mean you will be convicted. There might be a lot of discrimination toward you during this time, but at Tracey Wood and Associates, we believe that your side of the story matters and deserves to be told.

Manslaughter or Murder Defenses

When facing a serious criminal offense, fighting back is your only option. You must fight and prepare for your case if you expect a successful outcome. The best way to prepare, besides working with an experienced attorney, is by learning more about possible defenses. Here are some common defenses that could be used in a murder or manslaughter case:

  • Using a witness or alibi to prove your innocence
  • Insanity
  • Self-defense
  • Involuntary or voluntary intoxication
  • Accidental killing
  • Defense of others
  • Falsely accused or wrongly arrested
