A strong defense requires a hard look at the evidence

Being charged with a crime can be an overwhelming experience, but the accused do have the right to a defense and must be presumed innocent until proven guilty. By poking holes in the prosecution's case, a defendant can increase his or her chances of having the charges against them reduced or even dismissed.

In some cases, a defendant can show that police exceeded their authority in a search or arrest, violating the defendant's constitutional rights under the Fourth Amendment. In such cases, the court may have to suppress the evidence, greatly weakening the prosecution's case.

Much like no two criminal matters are exactly the same, no two defenses are the same. A criminal defense should consider the specific details of the case. This ensures that everything is addressed and nothing is missed when developing a criminal defense strategy. At Boyce, Leahy & Francescon Lawyers, our attorneys are well versed in state and federal criminal laws and are prepared to provide a strong criminal defense for people in the Manassas area.

Our attorneys have backgrounds in law enforcement and prosecution giving them valuable insight into the way prosecutors collect and present evidence in court, and the defense strategies that can work against them. The details are vital; therefore, we take the time to look over available evidence, determine if it was lawfully obtained and conduct our own investigation to help assert a defense that fits our client's situation and goals.
