Boston Violent Crimes Defense Attorney

Violent Crimes

Massachusetts reserves its very harshest punishment for crimes involving violence. These crimes, by definition, involve a victim, and the harm to the victim is often severe. When people say that they want prosecutors to be “tough on crime,” violent crimes are what they are thinking of. 

Everyone Deserves a Fair Trial

In order for our justice system to be truly just, however, every defendant must be given a fair trial–even, or especially, for violent crimes.

Pursuing the Truth

In a criminal trial, as in life, everything is not always as it seems. Juries have been trained by television shows to believe that physical evidence is unassailable. Witnesses may think that they’re telling the truth, when in fact their observations were incorrect or their memories are faulty. Some witnesses have motivation to be less than truthful, and tell convincing lies.

Sometimes what appeared to be a violent crime was in reality a case of self-defense. Sometimes the crime is real, but the wrong person is apprehended.

Boston criminal defense attorney Henry Fasoldt does not accept a case at face value. He delves beneath the surface,  looking for flaws in forensic evidence, inconsistencies in witness accounts, exploring alternative theories. His practice of thorough investigation is one reason for his excellent record in the multitude of violent crime cases he has defended.
