Boston Criminal Defense Attorney Speaking Arabic


I Need a Criminal Defense Attorney But I Don’t Speak English

When you are accused of a crime, your future hangs in the balance. If you are an arabic speaker or non-native speaker who lacks access to language support, it can be particularly nerve-wracking to navigate the legal system. It’s important for non-English speakers to retain an attorney as soon as possible. The steps that are taken during the immediate aftermath of being accused of a crime can be critical to the outcome of your case. At Dhar Law, LLP, we provide the services of an interpreter in several major languages spoken in Boston and MA, including Arabic. We are a top rated, compassionate and highly skilled criminal defense firm who represent clients from many of Boston’s diverse cultural communities. We are proud to defend the rights of all people accused of a crime, including people who may be at a disadvantage in the legal system due to language and cultural barriers. 


Massachusetts is growing increasingly diverse. People who identify as speaking Arabic have grown by 42% in the US between 2000 and 2017. Massachusetts has one of the fastest growing Arab-identifying populations in the US. People who speak Arabic come from a diverse set of nations, including Iraq, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Somalia and Sudan.

You Have the Right To An Attorney

The right to an attorney and the right to remain silent are some of the most important rights enshrined in the criminal justice system. You should never speak to law enforcement without an attorney present. Anything you do or say can and will be used against you. At Dhar Law, LLP, our interpreters are present during all conversations to ensure there is no miscommunication and your needs and wishes are communicated effectively. Interpreters are subject to attorney client privilege, and anything that is discussed in private with your attorney and interpreter present remains private. Being accused of a crime can jeopardize your career prospects, your relationships, your immigration status and all you have worked towards. At Dhar Law, LLP, we use all our resources to help anyone accused of a crime the chance to resume their life with the minimum disruption. Please don’t hesitate to call us at 617-880-6155 so we can build a strong defense.
