Choosing the Right Criminal Defense Attorney

If you have been charged with a crime, whether it be oui/dwi/drunk driving, assault and battery, a drug related crime, or any other type of crime, you need an experienced lawyer on your side. As a Salem criminal defense attorney, people often ask me how to choose the right attorney. This is a very important question because, without the right lawyer, you may not get the best possible result.

Because of the serious consequences that you can face when you are charged with a crime, it is important that you hire a lawyer who is very experienced in criminal law. It is also important to hire an attorney whose practice is focused primarily on criminal defense. These lawyers, like myself, are more likely to know the ins and outs of the criminal justice system and how to best fight your particular charges.

My practice is focused almost entirely on criminal defense. I have successfully defended clients in courts throughout Massachusetts and at the Massachusetts Court of Appeals. Additionally, as both a former police officer and a former prosecutor, I am uniquely qualified to help you obtain the best possible result on your case and to provide you with all of the information that you need in order to make good decisions on how to handle your case.

Don't be fooled by the other lawyers who will promise you the moon to get you to hire them. Instead, make sure you hire someone with the unique experience needed to fight your unique case. Hire someone who will give you honest and helpful advice and who will fight aggressively to get you the best possible result.
