Fairfax VA Criminal Defense Lawyer

The most important action for you to take following a criminal charge in Virginia is to immediately contact a Fairfax Virginia criminal defense lawyer.

In today’s complex criminal justice system both judges and jurors are relying more heavily on scientific laboratory analysis and the conclusions of those findings in determining guilt and innocence in the courtroom. This may not be surprising given the public’s familiarity with television shows such as CSI, Law and Order, Criminal Minds, and others as well as the occasional news broadcast showing law enforcement cracking the case through DNA comparison or some other type of forensic evidence.

Additionally, breakthroughs in science have led to advanced methods of collecting and analyzing evidence. It is true that science has advanced the investigative capabilities of law enforcement and enhanced the ability of prosecutors to gain convictions in court with the use of this evidence; however, this can be a double edged sword.

The advancements in science have also led to complex procedures and equipment that by their very nature lend themselves to mistakes that can affect results and contaminate the very evidence being offered against a defendant. There are three general areas that must be challenged by the defense team in cases involving these types of evidence. Your criminal defense lawyer must be well versed in discrediting this type of evidence.

You can’t possibly be expected to handle an allegation that you committed a crime alone. Because your nerves are probably on edge, it’s best to leave your case in the hands of experience – someone who will remain cool, calm, and collected even while you may not be. In other words, you need a Fairfax Virginia criminal defense attorney that has the experience necessary to fight for your rights.
