Boston Defense Lawyers Fighting Felony Charges

Top Felony Defense Attorneys

Felonies are those crimes punishable by more than five years in state prison. Often felony convictions carry mandatory minimum prison sentences, meaning that the judge has no discretion to impose a lighter sentence or probation. If you are found guilty after trial, the judge has to impose the mandatory minimum sentence. Felony sentences are typically served in state prison as opposed to a county jail or house of correction.

Experienced Defense Against All Serious Criminal Charges

Examples of felonies include aggravated assault and battery, sex offenses, firearms charges, armed robbery, arson cases, receiving stolen property, bank robbery, and murder. Most drug charges and white-collar crimes such as fraud and embezzlement are also felonies.

If you are under investigation for a state or federal crime that could result in felony charges, it is absolutely critical that you receive a qualified criminal defense attorney’s advice as soon as possible. While judges have no discretion in the mandatory minimum sentence, the prosecutor does have discretion in deciding the crimes with which he or she will charge you. An experienced felony defense lawyer may be able to persuade prosecutors not to charge you — or to charge you with a less serious offense.

As former prosecutors in Massachusetts, our Boston felony defense lawyers have tried hundreds of felony cases for the Commonwealth. Understanding how the state puts a felony case together helps us to attack those cases as criminal defense attorneys. We have an excellent track record over the years of obtaining dismissals, not guilty verdicts, and reduced charges for our clients. Contact us to discuss your rights and options.
