Assault And Violent Crimes

The alleged victim usually gets the initial benefit of the doubt. After an arrest, the police have a duty to investigate both the victim's account and alternative theories of what happened. If you are accused, you need an attorney who can stand up for your rights and find witnesses or evidence that may have been overlooked.

Drawing on our experience in law enforcement, the law firm of Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, provides a formidable defense to those accused of crimes of violence. Whether you are charged with misdemeanor assault or face years in prison for a major felony, we can skillfully challenge the prosecution's case and make sure that your side of the story is presented.

Our Manassas lawyers practice in Prince William County and throughout northern Virginia. Before you say one word to authorities, contact us for a confidential consultation (free for criminal and personal injury cases only).

Manassas Domestic Assault Lawyers
Experienced Defense For Violent Crime Allegations

The criminal defense lawyers of Boyce, Leahy & Francescon, Lawyers, have handled the full spectrum of violent crime cases:

We understand what a conviction as charged could mean for our clients — not only jail or prison, but also the collateral consequences for employment, child custody, gun rights and other facets of life. We make every effort to avoid or minimize those consequences.

The Other Side Of The Story

Trial lawyer and founder William Boyce formerly served as both a police officer and a prosecutor. He understands how a crime scene should be secured and handled, how interrogation tactics can cloud a suspect's judgment, and how to question the actions and conclusions of police officers and investigators.

We skillfully deconstruct the prosecution's case, from fingerprints, DNA and other forensic evidence to the circumstantial evidence and statements of alleged victims and witnesses. We hold the government to a high standard regarding identification of our client, investigation of alternative suspects, integrity of the crime scene and chain of evidence, interrogation methods, Miranda rights, Fourth Amendment issues and other issues that apply. We also explore affirmative defenses and mitigating factors such as self-defense, defense of another, provocation or mutual assault.

We regularly achieve dismissals and acquittals at trial, as well as favorable plea negotiations and sentence reductions. We strive for the best possible outcome in your situation, and we are prepared and equipped to fight for our clients through motions, hearings and trials.
