Waltham, Massachusetts Criminal Lawyer
First settled in 1634 as part of Watertown, Waltham, Massachusetts was officially incorporated as a separate town in 1738. Waltham lays claim to a rich history dating back to colonial times. The Massachusetts city played an important role early on in the labor movement. In addition, both during and following the Industrial Revolution, Waltham became a major manufacturing center.
As Waltham developed into a manufacturing hub, one specific industry began to rise to great heights - the watch industry. The "Waltham Watch Company" opened in Waltham in 1854 and was the first watch manufacturer to produce watches by means of an assembly line. Prior to closing in 1957, the company turned out over 40 million watches. As a result of the watch company's success, Waltham earned the nickname the "Watch City."
Today, Waltham is home to approximately 60,000 residents and two Universities - Brandeis University and Bentley University. Waltham is also the site of the Second District Court of Eastern Middlesex (commonly referred to as the Waltham District Court), which is located at 38 Linden Street. Criminal cases are heard in Waltham District Court Monday through Friday. In addition to serving the City of Waltham, the Court also serves the surrounding communities of Watertown and Weston.
