Boston Defense Attorneys Handling Violent Crime Cases

Boston Violent Crime Defense Lawyer

Seldom are violent crimes handled by the police in the manner portrayed in television and film dramas. Due to limited manpower and budget restrictions, police and prosecutors do not always pursue alternative suspects, verify or disprove alibis, nor interview witnesses who could provide exculpatory testimony. As experienced Boston violent crimes defense lawyers − and former prosecutors − attorney Yannetti and his associates are well-equipped to put the prosecution on the defensive by identifying and exploiting their failure to track down alternative suspects, pursue leads and properly handle evidence.

Contact David R. Yannetti and his colleagues at the Yannetti Criminal Defense Law Firm today for a free phone consultation. With many years of experience, we are truly seasoned Massachusetts criminal defense attorneys that you can trust to handle your case correctly and give you the proper advice.

Facing Charges for a Violent Crime

Attorney Yannetti and his associates represent clients charged with all types of violent crime, including the following:

Assumptions and Cut Corners − Why Few Cases Are “Open and Shut”

Police investigators and prosecutors often work from the assumption that most victims of violent crimes know their attacker. As a result, early on in an investigation, attention is typically focused on spouses, family members, friends, neighbors, romantic interests and co-workers. Unfortunately, circumstantial evidence or a weak alibi can result in a rush to judgment when police and prosecutors are overburdened and don’t have the time or resources needed to verify every bit of information or evidence.

Suffolk County Assault Defense Attorney

As your lawyers, David R. Yannetti and his associates may team up with our own investigators, forensic experts, and lab specialists to review and discover the weaknesses and inconsistencies in the prosecution’s version of events. Our attorneys may expose evidence that contradicts the prosecution’s theory, calling attention to corners that were cut in an investigation that should have been conducted differently. When your life or freedom is on the line, you need to retain an attorney who treats your case accordingly.
