Putting experience to work for those accused of theft

If you have been accused of a theft or property crime in Massachusetts, you need to take legal action in your defense as soon as possible. It is the responsibility of the prosecution to prove that you are guilty of the crime of which you are accused, and the more time you spend not preparing a legal defense, the less prepared you may be for the case that the prosecution prepares against you.

What is the legal BAC limit in Massachusetts?

The state of Massachusetts takes cases of DWI and OUI very seriously, especially since the passage of Melanie's Law. This enhances the penalties for OUI, which is why it is even more important for Massachusetts residents to seek legal defense if they are charged with any kind of drunk driving allegations. Penalties range from fines and license suspension to jail time or community service.

Cocaine laws in Massachusetts

Nearly every American citizen has heard of cocaine, and most people are familiar with the drug as a highly illegal and extremely dangerous substance. There are many reasons that the substance is dangerous, including its addictive properties and the effects it has on consumers, and because of this, law enforcement officials take possible cocaine incidents very seriously. This is perhaps more true in Massachusetts than in some other states, where cocaine is among the most heavily trafficked illegal drugs.

Drunk driving conviction leads to at least 7 years in prison

Many people are aware that serious penalties come with a drunk driving conviction, which is why it is imperative that those accused of dui offenses take legal action in their defense as soon as possible. Even being accused of drunk driving can have an impact on your life and reputation, but a conviction will likely turn your life upside down. Each case is different, and it is impossible to tell exactly how any given case will play out, but a recent Massachusetts case shows how frightening a conviction can be.

Legal defense for assault and battery accusations

While the average person does not likely get into many physical altercations, and very few people actually seek such things out, there are times when individuals may lay hands on one another. If alcohol is involved and things get out of hand, it is conceivable that some punches might be thrown, but what starts out as two people in a heated disagreement could easily become a criminal investigation.
