Criminal Defense Attorney in Salem, MA

Salem Criminal Defense Lawyer

salem criminal attorney

My Salem office is at 15 Church Street, near the Witch City Mall. My main office is in Boston, but I have a satellite office in Salem, MA.

Salem has both a district court and a superior court for Essex county.  The courthouse, a new building, is located on Federal Street in downtown Salem and has no dedicated parking lot.  You’ll have to find street parking.

If you have a summons for an arraignment or a clerk-magistrate hearing at Salem District Court, you should have a criminal defense lawyer to defend you.  It’s critical to hire one as soon as possible to help prepare for your hearing.

I handle all types of criminal cases in all Salem courts, including district court and superior court.  This includes OUI, domestic violence, and firearm cases, as well as all other types of criminal cases.  If you have a criminal case in Salem, call (or text) me at 978-607-0034.

The Criminal Defense Attorney You Are Looking for

The Essex County District Attorney handles all prosecutions in Salem, and the office is one of the toughest in the Commonwealth.  This is why you need an attorney who’s ready to go head-to-head with them and won’t shy away from a fight.

I have taken the fight to the district attorney in Salem.  This includes jury trials, motions to suppress, and bail appeals.  I have gotten clients released, even on dangerousness, when the district attorney has asked for them to be held in jail.

I’m a criminal defense attorney who is willing to fight for my clients.  This means fighting for your release, the case to be dismissed, and for them to be acquitted after a jury trial.

If you are looking for a criminal defense lawyer to fight for you in Salem, call (or text) me at 978-607-0034.  I will take your case personally!

My Commitment to My Clients

I not only fight for my clients, but I value my relationship with my clients.  If you hire me, you’re the boss.  This means that you choose the direction you want the case to go, and it’s my job to advise you.  As long as it’s within the ethical rules, I will go with your chosen path forward.

If you’re looking for a criminal defense attorney in Salem, call me today at 978-607-0034.  I am also available via text.

Additionally, I keep my clients informed.  Whether it’s by text, phone call, e-mail, or even Facebook, I keep in touch with my clients.  I typically return phone calls and texts within the day, barring extraordinary circumstances.

I also conduct meetings both in person and via Zoom.  Although my office is typically only open during business hours, weekend and off-hours meetings are available by appointment.  Call or text me today to set up a free case consultation!

If you are looking for a criminal defense lawyer in Salem, I am available by call or text at 978-607-0034, and I have an office in downtown Salem, a couple of blocks from the courthouse at 15 Church Street.

Attorney At Law

Boston DUI Lawyer Who Can Win Your Case

I know what questions to ask, what strategy to take, and what arguments to make to get you the best possible result.  Sometimes this means highly technical arguments to avoid some of the harsh penalties for OUI, such as the ignition interlock or increased fines.  Other times, it can mean making the right argument to win your case or get the charges dismissed.  I am a DUI lawyer in Boston, but I handle DUI cases all over Massachusetts.
