Vigorously Defending The Rights Of The Accused

No matter how serious the charges against you may be, a conviction will depend upon what a judge or jury hears, how they perceive the actions of police officers and investigators, and whether or not they believe prosecution witnesses to be credible.

With a former police officer leading our criminal defense team, Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, knows how to expose and underscore weaknesses in the prosecution's case against our clients. Our law firm draws on law enforcement experience and knowledge of the criminal justice system to assert your rights and counter the allegations. In fact, our attorneys conduct classes for law enforcement officers on criminal procedure.

Understanding How To Challenge The Case Against You

Police departments and prosecutors do not have the limitless manpower and financial resources portrayed in television shows like "CSI" or "Law and Order." As a result, other suspects, leads and evidence that contradict the prosecution's theory of events will often be overlooked.

As a former police officer and prosecutor, criminal defense lawyer William Boyce understands how to expose and exploit weaknesses in the case against our client. We track down witnesses the prosecution has overlooked, pursue alternative leads and introduce exculpatory evidence. We carefully review how a crime scene was processed, explaining to jurors how key evidence could have been tainted or improperly identified.

We regularly work with forensic experts, lab technicians and other professionals in challenging the validity of blood, hair and fiber samples; fingerprints; DNA analysis; and other evidence offered against our client. We make every effort to exclude prejudicial evidence or dismiss charges, and we investigate as if the case will go to trial. We also understand how to negotiate effectively with prosecutors when a plea bargain makes the most sense for our client.
