Day Law Firm, P.C. proudly defends people and organizations against the full spectrum of federal and state criminal prosecutions, from homicide cases to white-collar allegations.  We believe that successfully defending a client against criminal prosecution is one of the most noble acts a lawyer can perform, because our Constitution requires that every person is deemed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  

A person who is the target of criminal charges faces significant challenges and risks, so that person’s defense attorney must perform every step necessary to defend all constitutional, statutory, and common law rights.  We have defended hundreds of clients against criminal prosecution, and our criminal defense practice is committed to effectively, aggressively, and intelligently representing each client in an individualized and attentive manner.   Our defense experiences include:   

  • Successfully employing the doctrine of self-defense to obtain a Not Guilty jury verdict on behalf of a client charged with Aggravated Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon

  • Obtaining dismissal of multiple white-collar charges lodged against client, including Credit Card Fraud and Larceny by False Pretenses, following thorough review and investigation of relevant financial records

  • Effective use of pre-trial motion practice and aggressive cross-examination of the Commonwealth’s trial witnesses in order to obtain a jury verdict of Not Guilty on behalf of a client charged with multiple felonies, including Breaking and Entering with Intent to Commit a Felony and Larceny from a Person

  • Methodically challenging the reliability of trial witness’ alleged observations in order to obtain a Not Guilty jury verdict on behalf of a client who was mistakenly charged with Lewd and Lascivious Conduct while operating a motor vehicle

  • Obtaining a Not Guilty jury verdict on behalf of a client charged with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol following a motor vehicle accident, through the use of strategic pre-trial motion practice and zealous trial advocacy

  • Successfully moving to exclude statements made to police officers by alleged assault victim on grounds that such statements constituted hearsay that violated client’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, thus resulting in dismissal of all charges against client

  • Successfully arguing that all evidence seized during an illegal traffic stop and search must be suppressed, thus resulting in dismissal of multiple felony drug charges against client

We fully understand that a criminal prosecution can be a very confusing and unsettling experience, and we take pride in aggressively defending our clients while making sure they understand each step of the process.  The keys to a successful defense are tenacious investigation of the facts, complete knowledge of all relevant legal defenses, sound strategic and tactical skills, and zealous representation of the client through intelligent pre-trial motion practice and effective trial advocacy.  We combine each of these tasks in order to provide our clients with the best possible defense, because the results of even a relatively minor criminal prosecution may very well have a lifelong effect.
