OUI Drunk Driving

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts takes drunk driving or drinking while driving very seriously. Severe penalties are levied against multiple offenders. If you have been pulled over and arrested for Operating Under the Influence (OUI), that is a grave matter and you definitely need a good criminal defense attorney in your corner. Read More

Drug Possession / Distribution

Getting arrested for drug possession and/or intent to distribute in Massachusetts is a very serious matter. Penalties can be harsh, even for a first offense (depending on the substance(s) involved, amount(s), and other factors) and even if the charge is a misdemeanor rather than a felony. Read More

Assault & Battery

Heated arguments that escalate even slightly can turn into threats, scuffles, fistfights, beatings and other violence that can result in assault and battery charges. If you are found guilty of assault and battery in Massachusetts the penalties are up to 2½ years incarceration and a fine of up to $1,000. Read More
