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 prosecutor, criminal defense lawyer Kevin L. Leahy 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.
