Fall River, Massachusetts Criminal Lawyer

Fall River, Massachusetts was incorporated as a town in 1803. Interestingly, the name of the town was changed to Troy one year after its incorporation. Thirty years later, the town's name was changed back to Fall River. During the early 1800s, Fall River began utilizing the natural flow of water that runs through the town to industrialize the area. Following industrialization, Fall River became a major center of the textile industry.

Today, Fall River, MA is home to approximately 89,000 residents. The city is located along Mount Hope Bay at the mouth of the Taunton River.

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!
