What Is Your Experience Handling Criminal Defense Cases In Massachusetts?

I've been handling criminal defense cases in Massachusetts since 1990. Obviously, I have a great deal of experience handling a wide variety of criminal cases. And I have something more than that. I have previous years experience being a prosecutor, both as a student prosecutor in Massachusetts, and a prosecutor handling anything from assault to homicide, in New York. I know how the other side thinks, I know how to handle a criminal case. I certainly know my way around the courtroom. That's the experience that I bring to my client's representation.

What's The #1 Mistake People Make When Entering The Criminal Justice System?

The number one mistake that people make when they are confronted with the criminal justice system is thinking that they can handle it on their own. It's no big deal. If I just explain, with my golden tongue, what my circumstances are, everybody will say forget it, and let's go home. That does not happen. It is critical at moment one, if not sooner, to get an experienced attorney on your side, to protect you, to advise you. Too many times people make all kinds of statements. They think they're helping themselves. They're hurting themselves. Get an attorney right away. Follow what that attorney says, and let the attorney do his or her job.

    Dear Sam, I can not thank you enough for your expertise in the handling of Chris's case as well as your sensitivity and caring attitude. toward him. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. He really expressed how good it felt to be able to talk to you! Sincerely and may God bless you.

    I really appreciate your prompt and highly effective assistance on this matter. After six different OUI attorneys told me that there was no way to recall the warrant and dismiss the charges against me without me returning to Mass from California, you managed to accomplish what they said was impossible. Thanks again!
