A person facing criminal charges risks severe penalties and consequences, such as jail time, having a criminal record, and loss of relationships and future job prospects, among other things. While some legal matters can be handled alone, a criminal arrest of any nature warrants the legal advice of a qualified criminal defense attorney who can protect your rights and secure the best possible outcome for your case.

If you're facing criminal prosecution, wen can help you understand (1) the nature of the charges filed; (2) any available defenses; (3) what plea bargains are likely to be offered; and (4) what is expected after trial or conviction.

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has 63 district courts and 20 superior courts that resolve more than 235,000 criminal cases each year.

A criminal conviction can result in imprisonment as well as other serious consequences. A few examples of other consequences include the risk of deportation if you not a United States citizen, the loss of public housing benefits, and the inability to obtain a student loan.
