Arson Defense

If you have been charged with arson, do not leave the outcome of your case to chance. Insurance companies and law enforcement have extensive resources that they use in these types of cases. If you have been charged with arson, it is important that you obtain representation from a law firm able to muster similar resources and conduct its own investigation.

Mounting a strong defense against arson charges

At the Denner Criminal Defense Group, our lawyers have access to a variety of fire experts. They can determine whether accelerants were used to start the fire and whether those same substances appear in the defendant’s home or car. They interview witnesses about the first signs of the fire. They also analyze insurance reports on the structure to determine its condition before the fire.

A local office for the convenience of clients

If you are being investigated for or have been charged with arson, contact an experienced and resourceful attorney right away. The Denner Criminal Defense Group lawyers have a long record of accomplishment defending clients charged with arson. From our office in Boston, we combine the extensive resources of our firm with the experience of our lawyers to get results for clients.

Arson charges

We have successfully defended clients charged with:

  • Setting fire to a house
  • Setting fire to a church or synagogue
  • Trying to set fire to a house or church or synagogue
  • Setting fire to woods
  • Negligent use of fire, such as a campfire or backyard barbecue getting out of control
  • Burning with intent to commit fire insurance fraud
  • Burning with intent to disguise a crime
  • Preventing access to fire by firefighting personnel
  • False alarms that result in injury

We use the testimony of experts and witnesses to demonstrate that our client could not have set the fire or that the fire was accidental. Because the evidence in fire cases is usually circumstantial, these cases are often not as strong as the prosecution would like. We are known for our creativity and knowledge of the law in arson defense.
