Have you been pulled over and issued a criminal citation (or arrested) ?

Don’t let a Criminal Charge Leave you with a Permanent Criminal Record!

If you are like many people arrested for criminal driving violations in Massachusetts, you may have had no idea you were doing anything wrong.

A large part of my practice is representing people at Clerk Magistrate’s Hearings for people who have been cited for Leaving the Scene of an Accident (Hit and Run) or Negligent Operation (Reckless Driving).

If you were in an accident, you may not have noticed that there was damage, or understood your responsibility to stop.

How to Beat Your Clerk Magistrate’s Hearing

Many people make good faith mistakes in these cases, but that doesn’t make you a criminal. And a Clerk Magistrate’s Hearing is the best opportunity to stop a criminal investigation before it is even formally charged.

I win at these hearings all the time, and help my clients avoid a criminal record. I wrote a book on these hearings, and I will happily discuss how I can help you.

DUI Charges

If you were arrested for DUI, you may have not thought you were drunk. Or, maybe you didn’t know that your license or insurance was not valid. You are probably shocked and distressed to learn that you are facing criminal charges, fines, and loss of driving privileges, even possible jail time, and the prospect of a permanent criminal record, anytime someone does a simple background check on you.

You were just minding your own business, driving down the road, with no criminal motive. And know you are facing a serious criminal charge.

But I want you to know that there is a good chance I can help. If you were arrested or given a criminal traffic summons to appear in court at a clerk magistrate’s hearing, there is a very good chance I can really help you fix this.

Don’t let a traffic ticket give you a criminal record without a fight!

I have been fighting DUI charges in Massachusetts for over 20 years. I am a recognized expert on Massachusetts licensing, suspension rules, and Registry issues.

I fight and win against these kinds of charges all the time in Massachusetts courts. I’m here to tell you that they can be beaten, or, at least, we can likely get the penalties significantly reduced. Even if you don’t want to fight the charges at trial, it’s very possible to get the DA to agree to a plea of a continuation / Continuance without a Finding, which will avoid any license loss. There are always a number of legal options available, and I’d be happy to discuss them with you as they may apply to your specific case, with no further obligation to you.

I’ve successfully defended every kind of traffic charge, including:

I also handle civil charges such as speeding, operating with an expired license, or other moving violations (marked lane violations, etc.), especially in cases where you are facing a license loss. I can help you keep your freedom to drive. Too many tickets can classify you as a habitual traffic offender. You can be facing a license suspension for as little as three (3) speeding tickets. A suspended license can be devastating for those who need to drive to earn a living. And of course, any criminal traffic offense requires a lawyer.

Call me to speak about  your Massachusetts motor vehicle offense, and I can give you specific advice about your options for defending your rights and your freedom to drive. Being charged is not the same thing as being guilty!
