When an individual is killed as a result of drunk driving, allegations of intoxication manslaughter are all the more aggressively pursued against any suspected individual. The Dallas legal team at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter understands how charges of intoxication manslaughter will likely be prosecuted and, therefore, how to best defend against them.

However, by retaining legal representation as early on in the process as possible, you have the best chance of the allegations leveled against being reduced or dropped altogether.
