Somerville Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been accused of a crime, you may be facing serious consequences even if you’ve never been charged with a crime before. Hiring the right criminal defense attorney is critical to your outcome in court. It is imperative to have the best Somerville criminal defense lawyer in your corner.

Before I started my own law practice, I worked as a public defender for 12 years, representing criminal defendants who were unable to afford their own attorney. I worked on the most difficult cases against prosecutors who consistently sought the harshest punishment and judges who were ready to impose long sentences. My time as a public defender provided me with the confidence to assertively represent my clients in the courtroom and with significant trial experience. As a result, I do not shy away from taking a tough case to trial and get great results in both state and federal court.

As a skilled Somerville criminal defense attorney, I have established myself as a lawyer who provides creative and effective legal representation. I am committed to not only getting the best possible result for my clients, but to make sure that they understand the process. I understand how stressful it is to be charged with a crime and I consider it my responsibility to alleviate some of that fear by taking the time to carefully explain the legal process to my clients. I explain all options and possible outcomes and make myself available both in-person and by phone to discuss any questions that may arise.
