Criminal Defense

A criminal conviction can adversely affect your personal freedom, and even land you in prison. If you face criminal charges of any kind, it is important to know your rights and the potential consequences that you may face upon conviction.  We offer experienced and strategic advocacy to protect clients facing criminal charges. You need to consult with a Criminal defense attorney as soon as you become aware that the police or another state agency is looking for or investigating you, or if you believe that you may have committed a crime. The earlier you contact a lawyer the better. An attorney can intervene with the police and either prevent an arrest or, if you are going to be arrested, arrange for your surrender at a time and in a manner that minimizes embarrassment to you or your family. Retaining a lawyer also prevents the police from questioning you.

We defend adults and juveniles on all types of misdemeanor and felony charges including:

            DUI/OUI/Drunk Driving

Personal Injury

We understand that being the victim of a car accident or any type of unfortunate circumstance in which you were injured, can be a life changing event.

If you or a loved one was the victim in an accident, whether it was a car accident, pedestrian accident, construction accident, or any other circumstance that left you injured, call or email our office to consult with one of our attorneys.

You generally have three years under Massachusetts Law from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. In addition to the general three year Massachusetts Statute of Limitations, there may be additional notification deadlines if, for example, your personal injury claim is against the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, a Massachusetts state agency or a municipality. That’s why it’s important to hire a lawyer as soon as possible if you’ve been seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence. Upon evaluation of your case, we will determine whether you have grounds to file a claim and what steps need to be taken to ensure that you receive all the benefits that you are entitled to.
