Criminal Defense


If you have been charged with any type of criminal offense in Massachusetts, you need effective and aggressive legal defense right away. Otherwise, you could be convicted and face collateral consequences and monetary penalties that are far-reaching and long-lasting.

These penalties may include:

Revoked or suspended professional license
Loss of Green Card or other immigration benefits
Extensive rehabilitative courses
Mandatory educational classes
Restrictive probationary terms and conditions
Restrictions on out-of-state travel
Exorbitant fines and court fees
Revoked driver’s license and RMV restrictions
Even if you are convicted of a misdemeanor, a conviction will appear on your criminal record and potentially hinder your ability to get a job, continue your professional licensing, find housing, and even apply for certain loans.
