My Approach to Your Case

Preparation for Criminal Trial

As a Boston criminal defense lawyer with over twenty years of trial experience, I know that preparation is the key to successfully representing clients in any type of criminal case. There is no substitute. A criminal defense lawyer must immerse himself in a case so that he is ready for anything — or he is setting up both himself and his client for failure.

When I walk into a courtroom with my clients, every issue has been researched and every argument considered. In short, I make sure that I have out-prepared the opposition and have put my client in the best possible position to obtain a successful outcome. Preparation is the key to success.

I handle every type of criminal case, including DUI/OUI, criminal motor vehicle charges, juvenile crimes, domestic violence, drug offenses, weapons charges, theft crimes, white-collar and federal crimes, armed robbery, sex offenses, and murder.

Experienced and Skillful Representation

Another key element to the successful representation of a client is a lawyer’s skill in the courtroom. A criminal lawyer must have substantial trial experience to gain the perspective necessary to properly persuade a judge or a jury that his side of the case is correct.

With over ten years of experience as a former prosecutor and many more years as a criminal defense attorney, I have tried hundreds of criminal cases – several of them high-profile. I know how to excel while under extreme pressure. My reputation for the successful defense of people charged with crimes speaks for itself.

Personal Attention

In the end, the main reason my criminal defense practice has become so successful is the professional relationship I cultivate with each client. When a client hires me, I am the attorney who will resolve his or her case. I personally deal with prosecutors and judges on the client’s behalf. I personally make sure that my clients understand the legal process every step of the way.

I understand that my job is not to force my opinions on my clients. My job is to counsel them so that they have the information they need to make the right choice for them. My clients appreciate the fact that I treat them as individuals — and treat them with respect. I would have it no other way.
