Top Boston Criminal Defense Lawyer

The attorneys get to know the business of their clients on a personal level.

“The leadership, advocacy, and commitment to social justice issues makes the firm stand out among the many firms in Boston and around the country. While I have worked in several legal communities within the United States and abroad, I have never experienced a firm that truly cares–not only about its clients (which it truly does), but also about the communities and people that are affected by this complex legal system. At Dhar, the attorneys don’t just recognize that responsibility to give back to our society, it’s part of the very fabric of the firm. Further, I have met a number of the attorneys and have seen the exemplary level of advocacy that they provide for their clients. The attorneys get to know the business of their clients on a personal level. This attribute, along with the interpersonal qualities that the leadership and attorneys have, truly make this an outstanding firm that I would recommend to my closest friends and family.” Anuj K.
