Extensive experience and service in Boston and the surrounding areas

Each court in the Massachusetts court system has a system of regulations and processes, nuances and all, that is specific to the city. Because we offer our services to many other municipalities, our attorneys have the skills and experience to seamlessly take a case in front of many different judges.

Goldenberg most frequently appears in the following courts, but she and Fahey are not limited to only serving these areas:

  • Ayer
  • Belmont
  • Boston
  • Cambridge
  • Concord
  • Lawrence
  • Lowell
  • Newton
  • Somerville
  • Waltham 
  • Woburn

Her experience as both a public defender, and a private criminal defense attorney in Boston MA and elsewhere, means she has a thorough understanding and experience of how courts in many different cities in Massachusetts operate.

This is particularly relevant because it means she knows the individuals, nuanced systems, and peculiarities specific to each court. An example of how this is beneficial for someone facing criminal charges is the appeal process. Skilled lawyers like Keren Goldenberg or Kayla Fahey know whom to approach directly and quickly in order to help push an appeal through to successfully avoid potential jail time or hefty fines. 

Handling expert witnesses

In 2009, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the case of Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts that an expert witness must be brought in to speak to the identity of an unknown substance submitted as evidence. Since this ruling, no matter the level of the case, expert witnesses must be brought in to testify in basic drug cases. 

Keren Goldenberg has extensive experience in handling expert witnesses. This is especially important, because although it is assumed that an “expert witness” speaks to the legitimacy of the evidence in question, often the prosecution will use weaker evidence by relying on witnesses like police officers who used “visual identification” to identify suspected substances. Goldenberg and Fahey know the importance of challenging the submission of this evidence pre-trial. You can learn more from Keren Goldenberg about challenging expert witnesses here.

Her knowledge and practice does not stagnate, she is always informed and stays up-to-date with shifts and changes within the legal system that may not be on the immediate radar of other criminal defense law firms.
